The Odyssey by ColinHSillerud The Odyssey by ColinHSillerud
One of my last and favorite images from this summer. This was shot in the twilight of the setting sun literally as the milky way was first visible. That is why there is still blue in the sky and illumination on the ground. The land is a composite of 3 ~5s images for focus blending with the camera pointed down. I then rotated the camera up 90 degrees and shot the sky with a 30s exposure and manually aligned/blended them in post.

It is a long walk.  Three days to be exact, but that difficulty is what makes it so special to me.

It definitely was worth it. In my region it's impossible to see the milky way ... to many towns and too much light ... too bad :/ It's my biggest wish to see this one day. Aurora would be great, too *__* Nature is an amazing thing. :)

I am still impressed by your idea. Never thought about blending horizontal and vertical images together. But it certenly makes sense when shooting milky way :)

It is only horizontal images blended.  Two horizontals stacked vertically.
