Photo of the Week - 8/19/20

Shutter Speed: 30 Seconds

Aperture: f4.0

ISO: 3200

Camera: Canon 5D Mark IV

Lens: Canon 8-15mm f4.0

I took this shot in Acadia National Park last August. Since the beginning of my photography interests, I have been fascinated with photographing the stars. So I think it’s safe to say that shooting the Milky Way was high on my list. We spent the first night at a campground in Acadia making a fire and enjoying a nice warm night toasting marshmallows and making s'mores. That night, it rained. It rained a lot; so much that everything the next day was completely soaked. We traveled all around Acadia and Bar Harbor that day. Once we returned to the campsite, we tried making a fire again. Because everything was still wet from the night before, we couldn’t make a fire. I had no idea what to do. The camp fire was such a great way to end the night before. But as the night went on and the clouds started drifting away, the sky opened up to a beautiful sight. It was one of the clearest nights I’ve ever seen, and for once, I could see the Milky Way with my naked eye. I knew this would be an amazing opportunity to take photos. I set up my camera and my tripod in total darkness and started clicking away. This is a shot from one of my favorite nights.
