Milky Way Vermont Fall 2021

 We only had a few clear nights to do any Milky Way photography during the week long foliage trip. The first night a few of us went to shoot the Milky Way over a church in Newark VT. I processed these images two different ways.

This photo I included the light trails from a moped who drove by. I could hear him coming so timed my shot so that he would be driving past as the shutter was open.

We also photographed the Milky Way the following night from the back deck of the house. It was the easiest and most convenient night shoot I've ever done. We set our camera settings in the house, loaded our cameras on the tripod, shut off all of the interior lights, stepped out on to the deck, and took our shots. I thought we would need to light paint the foliage in the yard, but it lit up beautifully during the long exposure.

I've done some local shooting here in MA two days this week. I may post some of those photos on the next blog post, or I may just continue with Vermont Photos. Haven't decided yet. I hope you enjoy your weekend!


  1. Thanks so much Salty. I really appreciate it.

  2. Thanks for sharing your images again, Carol. I love to look at these and remember doing a milky way shoot with you. These are really outstanding, especially with the rich colors of the foliage.
