Star Gazing

Star Gazing © Cristen J. Roghair http://cristenjoyphotography.com

I have never seen anyone try photographing the Milky Way with horses. Since they move, they aren’t an ideal subject to add to the image but I wanted to  see what I could come up with. Needing the camera open for at least 20 seconds with a high ISO to gain the correct exposure, I thought Rock was sleeping and that this would work for him to be silhouetted against the night sky.  I had my camera almost resting on the ground, stabilized by my tripod, so there’s also bits of grasses in the foreground. Just a few seconds into the exposure, Rock dropped his head down to eat. I was sure the shot was ruined but it couldn’t have turned out any better!

Shot in mini-September, it is possible that the bright yellow star you can see is Jupiter.
