My next major challenge in my photography will be pano work to hopefully include some astrophotography in that mix…

Fingers In The Fire
I've had one of these horizon-to-horizon Milky Way captures in-mind for a little while now… just been waiting for the right spot to try it. And while I really went up to Windy Ridge to catch the Perseids Meteor Shower, I ended up liking the results of this effort even more than the couple of meteors I was able to catch.
In this image, the Milky Way stretches behind a scraggly looking tree all the way from one horizon to the other – reaching over to the light pollution and glow from the rising moon to the east. The composite image you see here comes from 18 individual captures that featured a little light painting at both ends – captured up on Windy Ridge in the Bristlecone Pine area near Alma, Colorado and then stitched together with Microsoft ICE.
