Travel » Milky Way Over Hunting Island, SC

Astrophotography, Personal, Travel

I’ve done astrophotography before, but usually only picked up the Milky Way through looong exposures as it wasn’t visible to the naked eye. Hunting Island, however, is so dark and isolated that I looked up one night and realized I could actually see it for myself. Excitement ensued, and I ran onto the beach to grab these shots (and cursed myself for not bringing a tripod on our trip). Despite the wind and my makeshift picnic table “tripod”, I got some really pretty images.
