Photo of the Week for March 29, 2019
Two key elements for a compelling nightscape shot are an eye-catching foreground subject, and an interesting location. This evocative photo of an abandoned farmhouse in Westmorland County, New Brunswick, has both in spades. Night-sky aficionados will also appreciate the Perseus Double Cluster left of the tree, and the Andromeda Galaxy to the left of the house’s chimney.
Barry Burgess captured the scene with a 30-second exposure at ISO 1600, using a Canon EOS 6D DSLR camera and Zeiss 25mm f/2 Distagon lens working at f/2.4.
