I decided to make the most of a day off to head to a place I have been wanting to shoot for quite a while, so my wife and I packed the car and the dog and decided to camp a night on a remote and lonely beach to take some photos and do some surfing.
It just so happens that I had been looking at some images of the Milky Way, and figured I might give it a try. I've never attempted this before, but this location provided a great opportunity to experiment with the shapes and textures of the dunes as a foreground to the sky, which I illuminated with a flashlight.
These are 3 of the better ones.
They are single exposures processed in Lightroom. The first two have the Southern Cross sitting just above the dune, for those who are interested.
Your thoughts and comments welcomed.
