Milky Way over the old cross
Contest Number: 173 Contest Theme: Best of 2020 Lens: Tamron AF 17-35mm f2.8-4 Camera: PENTAX K-5 II Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: amrocha, 01-31-2021, 07:16 PM

I have been wanting this shot since I started photographing the Milky Way years ago, but only in 2020 I was able to get it. This old cross sits on a hill at my late grandfather's farm, and only last September, during this pandemic, I was able to get there with the MW in the right position, and also with a good weather condition and clean access (the tall grass and my fear of snakes were my limitations in other opportunities). I am not sure how old is this cross, but we believe it must be more than 100 years old.

EXIF: 17mm f2.8 25" ISO3200, single exposure
