Infinity and Beyond

Lake Superior Shoreline, MN

The advancement in camera technology has opened new opportunities for photography formerly reserved for NASA. It requires a sound understanding and ability to adhere to precise techniques. As I began experimenting with nighttime photography one of my first subject of focus was the Milky Way arch. On a clear dark night in spring and early summer one can usually make out the faint band as it arches close to the horizon. With a combination of eight high resolution images taken over fifteen minutes much greater details can be captured. This image showing over a 180 degree view was taken around midnight on a dark/clear night in Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, along the Minnesota North Shore of Lake Superior.
