Milky Way Rise

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Scott Bycroft

This is an image of the Milky Way rising over the Indian Ocean after sunset at the Wanagarren nature Reserve, in Western Australia. The white beach sand dunes are constantly subject to harassment by strong winds, and so it was on this evening - with a 25 knot southerly making shooting difficult. This is a single exposure, with the dunes being lit for effect with a flashlight.

Location: Wanagarren Nature Reserve
