This image is a composite of 65 frames from a static time lapse of the Milky Way moving across the sky. I stacked the frames of this sequence to make a standard star trails image and then blended/masked in a single frame of the Milky Way. I jumped into the last frame and pointed at the sky. Shooting straight into the light at a lighthouse tower is always difficult but I like the final result here.
The Milky Way rising above the Atlantic Ocean taken next to a creek on the East side of Sand Beach in Acadia National Park, Maine. The foreground was light painted during the exposure.
