I planned and planned for this one, tried light painting, focus stacking, and.... blah.... lackluster. Too much light pollution and my technique wasn't the best. But it's good practice for when I'm back in West Texas again.

It's actually one shot, my technique ( if it's one ) is using the PhotoPills app. I used it to find the darkest location, when the Galactic Center was visible and no moon. I also used a bright wide angle lens. I'm very fortunate to live in Canadian Rockies.

Well, I like it, and I think it's an interesting composition.
Keep doing what you, is all I'm gonna say. I like it.

Forecast said cloudy so didn't plan a shoot. But when mother nature called at 3am I looked out the window and the stars where shining, so propped the camera up on the railing of the deck and took a quick shot.

Thank you both for the kind comments. We like it a lot. Both my wife and I grew up less than 10 min, in opposite directions. We are over a km to the nearest neighbour and that is where the grid lines stop as well, but good year round road right to our door. We have 5300W solar array with a 40KW battery bank and a 230V/4400W inventer and 7000W auto backup generator. So just like living on grid. We have a wet land to the south & west that drain into a large lake and farm fields to the north & east. Great for wildlife. We have a few bird feeders and sitting in my pop-up blind I've recorded close to 30 individual species in a single day during the peak of spring migration. It is just SW of Gore Bay, Ontario, Canada. Retirement is good here!

Finally got out for some astro shooting last night.

I've been wanting to try this location for quite a while and the weather finally played along. After an hours walk up the beach we settled in for some shots.

Interesting set of night shots you have shone. Keep them coming.

Wish we had interesting cars like that in the states. :)
