I've been on a bit of a nightscape kick lately. Yesterday evening I took my family for a night under the stars at the Dog Head burn scar in the Manzano Mountains and captured this (click for high-res version).
It was a beautiful evening, temps in the 70s and a constant but soft breeze. Although I can't say I'm happy about how many forest fires we've had in the last few years, I have been curious to see how a wide milky way shot would look through burnt trees. I'm also quite surprised at how quickly things have started to grow back after only 18 months.
Side note - I decided to write an article about all the different ways I've exposed foregrounds in nightscapes since I started this hobby two years ago. If you're curious, you can read it here.
C&C welcome and appreciated!
