The Northern section of the Milky Way shines behind the "shadow rays" coming from the astragals in the tower cap of Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine. Our nearest galaxy neighbor Andromeda is visible on the right.
The late Winter Milky Way arcs across the sky accompanied by Venus reflecting in the Atlantic Ocean at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine. The small light on the horizon under Venus is the lighthouse on Monhegan Island which is 12 miles off the coast. This image is a 3 photograph panorama taken in portrait orientation. Stitched in PTGui and processed through Lightroom 5 & Photoshop CS5.
The Milky Way rising on a cold February morning accompanied by a very bright Venus just below it. The foreground was lit by a passing car.
