Milky Way Selfie Peveril Point Swanage.
Sometimes photographers can be too serious. All in a row, cameras on a tripod looking at the sunset through a camera but missing the event. The same can be true of any photographic trip. Its always good to take a step back and take in the image of what you are there to actually capture. Especially true of the Milky Way. The scale of the stars just can’t be perceived even through a lens at 20 mm.
With the darkness at Peveril point and some time for the eyes to adjust more stars start to appear. Soon after arrival I knew that a single shot would not capture the whole of the arch. I just had to stand and admire mother nature.
