This Milky Way shot was taken in Dwejra Bay on the island of Gozo. It is an island of the Maltese archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.
The foreground was photographed separately well after sunset, to obtain a deeper depth of field. A yacht was anchored just outside of the image and it’s spotlight was enough to illuminate the rock with a beautiful orange glow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The moon was also starting to rise just out of picture which gave the water a surreal glow. It did however wash out the sky a bit... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’d like to give Milky Way photography a bash, find a place with little light pollution on a moonless night and try the following settings: Manual Mode | f2.8 | 25” | 3200 ISO - keep Long Exposure Noise Reduction ON. Also, make sure you’re focussed on infinity 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
