Milky Way Killington VT

 As previously mentioned, I have some photos taken this past Fall that I haven't shared on the blog. Today's photo is a Milky Way shot that I took at Kent Pond in Killington. It was a very chilly night with very strong winds blowing across the pond. The water had waves and white caps as you would see along the ocean from the strong winds.

This was a perfect location for shooting the Milky Way, as it rose directly above the peak of Killington Mountain.

There was something really special about the night sky this particular evening. I have never seen so many stars, and such vibrant stars, in the Vermont sky as I did this particular evening. I'm not sure why but it was a gorgeous sight to see. 

 The trees in the forefront are not sharp due to the long shutter speed I used and the blowing winds. However, I still love this photo despite it's technical flaw.

Stay safe and well my friends. xxoo
