Doug's view

Milky Way Over New Mexico


This picture was taken just east of Abiquiu, NM at 8:40 PM at a private ranch next to Plaza Blanca while attending a workshop on Milky Way photography taught by Glenn Randall. It is a 30 second exposure, post-processed first in Lightroom and then in Photoshop in order to balance the foreground and the background and tune the colors to what you see. The foreground is  lit with two LED lights shining from the left and right, a common approach when shooting the Milky Way.
