Milky Way and Sea Stacks by Barry Burgess

Milky Way and Sea Stacks by Barry BurgessAs winter transitions into spring, it’s difficult not to anticipate the arrival of warmer weather and the return of the summer constellations. But for those willing to rise before dawn, you can get a preview of Sagittarius Milky Way right now, albeit without the accompanying mild temperatures. And if you’re not an early riser, perhaps this wonderfully evocative photo by Barry Burgess will suffice.

Barry captured this striking view of the Sagittarius Milky Way shimmering above sea stacks in the Bay of Fundy at Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, Nova Scotia, on August 23, 2016. He used a Canon EOS 6D DSLR camera and Zeiss Distagon for this 30-second exposure at ISO 5000.
