After driving for 16 hours I pulled off onto a country road to get a little shut eye. It seamed like i was in the middle of now where and extremely dark until I stepped out of the truck to stretch my legs. While stretching I looked up to see the most amazing sky I had even seen. So much for resting. I gathered my gear and spend a good hour photographing the milky way with numerous lenses and different settings. This is my favorite but the shot had so much noise that it was almost a throw away..... almost. I've upgraded my software and developing techniques and have been able to pull out some amazing detail and reduce the dark noise.
