One of my great childhood memories is of being able to sit down at Deepwater Point and being able to see the Milky Way clearly. Its a lot more difficult now to get the same view of the stars unless you’re willing to do a little travel. If you are you’ll still be rewarded with an amazing Milky Way spectacle.
I drove about 2.5hrs East to capture this shot on a night when the car was reading -3 degrees Celsius. Ouch it was cold! This was shot two weeks ago, and one of the best things about shooting in Winter is that you’ll get this sort of view at 7pm onwards. So I didn’t have to stay up too late for this shot. Always a good thing when you hear Dingos howling nearby. I managed to capture the shots I wanted and be in bed safe from the Dingos by 9pm.
It was a successful trip and I can’t wait to head out there again. This place was really interesting and I’m pretty sure I could spend the entire daytime shooting here as well.
What do you think of when you look at the stars?
