Exmoor Stream and the Milky Way

“River to the Stars”

Early in the Milky Way season means a very early (or late) start. The Milky Way was going to be in prime position at about 0430, but this location is an hour’s hike from the car park on Exmoor. I arrived at midnight, hoping to get some good foreground shots before the the galactic core rose above the horizon. The night was clear and frost formed on my walking boots as I stood beside the little stream leading towards this clump of trees. Luckily I had hand warmers and a flask, so had an enjoyable few hours shooting the foreground and waiting for the earth to rotate into the best spot for my composition.

Clouds started rolling in at about 4 and my hopes of a clear sky began to fade, but in the end, the pattern that the clouds formed – framing the path of the Milky Way – works really well for the image.
