Haystack Rock, at the edge of the seashore in Cannon Beach, OR, is an often-photographed sea stack on the Oregon coast.
The Milky Way lines up behind the sea stack at night in the summer. The trick with this shot is to get a clear night at the right time of the lunar cycle without fog.
I framed this shot and patiently waited for a receding wave to leave a little water on the sandy shore to catch reflections from the stars. This is a single 10-second exposure.
