You need really dark skies to photograph the Milky Way. Recently I’ve been so preoccupied with improving my Milky Way photography that I’ve dismissed taking photos on clear nights if the moon is out. Turns out I was missing what these beautiful, clear, moonlit nights had to show me.
Recently I got to spend an entire day in Hocking Hills, from long before sunrise to well after sunset. It was a full day of light and dark, fire and water, and solitude and new friends.
I am mildly red/green colorblind which isn’t great for an amateur landscape photographer. Earlier this year I got a pair of Enchroma color correcting glasses and this is the first autumn I’ve gotten to see in full color. It’s freakin’ awesome!
