Awe of the Cosmos

In the embrace of the night, I embarked on a nocturnal adventure to capture the ethereal beauty of the Milky Way. As I stood beneath the starlit sky, the Punta Nariga lighthouse stood tall, bathed in the gentle glow of the galaxy's arch above.

However, this time, I sought to add a unique touch to the scene. Instead of positioning the lighthouse at the center, I chose to frame a powerful and captivating foreground that mirrored the beauty of the celestial arc. By exploring the rugged cliffs surrounding the lighthouse, I discovered captivating rocks that added strength and depth to the composition.

During my first night excursion with the @irixlens 21mm F1.4 lens, I discovered its prowess in capturing the allure of the nocturnal world. It was an enchanting experience and I discovered the lens' capabilities under the starry night.

The result is a harmonious blend of elements: the majesty of the Milky Way, the steadfast lighthouse, and the captivating rocks united to create a symphony of celestial wonders. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of this magical encounter.

May this photograph mark the beginning of many more journeys into the nocturnal realm, where creativity knows no bounds and the night sky unfolds its secrets.

Thank you Greg!

Enhorabuena Alvaro !!

¡Muchas gracias compañero!!

This is great! It's very challenging to get the Milky Way having the light from the lighthouse. Did you cover that spot? or is there some other trick?

Thank you!

It wasn't necessary to cover the lighthouse's light because I was positioned lower, and its intensity barely affected the shot. Controlling the ISO and achieving a balance between capturing the details of the Milky Way and preventing light pollution from ruining the photo was crucial in obtaining the desired result.

Good luck with your future nighttime photography!
