Milky Way at Cadillac Mountain

Memories of Maine. Milky Way at Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. We were photographing the Milky Way adjacent to the parking area at the peak of the mountain and the tail lights of a car leaving the area added an interesting eery red glow. Captured with Nikon D750 and Nikkor 16-35mm at 16mm, ISO 3200, 20sec, f/4, Aperture Priority, Lighthroom for toning & crop. Staff Favorite and Finalist at in February 2018.
