The Milky Way
Photographing The Milky Way is always a challenge, especially when trying to capture its ethereal beauty above the Glastonbury landscape. Dark skies are necessary, so I usually shoot these images around the time of the new moon. Clear skies are also important, and finding a dark location well away from sources of light pollution and street lights. Although The Milky Way is barely visible to the naked eye in our light-polluted world, a long camera exposure and wide aperture lens will capture it perfectly if the conditions are right. Patience and perseverance are the key.
