Trying your hand at something new is an exciting, and sometimes daunting prospect. Luckily, photography offers you the opportunity to do this to your heart's content. I had wanted to capture the Milky Way for a long time, but location and timing had often conspired to delay this. Not this time. My friend and I decided to head out to Shark Fin Cove in Davenport and accomplish this. Cue in a nice, clear, cold evening, and we were amply rewarded. It was too dark to risk climbng down to the cove itself to get a better composition with the shark fin in the foreground, but I managed to get both the feature and the Milky Way in this vertical shot. Cleaned up as much exposure noise as I could in the picture along with a little dehazing, temperature, and contrast adjustments to get the final result.
