Milky Way Silhouettes

Here is a second photograph from last night, same location as the previous Farming Stars. I really enjoyed this brief 30 minutes photo session, which ended up quite productive. Sometimes you can spend a whole weekend taking astrophoto’s and not end up with much pleasing from it, where as other times you spent 30 minutes out and come home with a swag of photographs.

This photograph features the Milky Way high in the eastern sky and the sharp contrast of silhouetted dead tree in the foreground. The bright and colourful Milky Way is matched on the landscape with soft greens of the green paddock. Fence lines extend across the paddock.

The bright star Antares (yellow/orange in colour) is at the top of the frame and is part of the tail of Scorpio which is one of the constellations visible in this photograph.
