When I went to Oregon last year with a bunch of AWESOME photo dudes, one thing we planned on was shooting along the Oregon coast, specifically around Cannon Beach. If you have never been, I highly recommend a visit. That place is just awesome all the way around.
But one thing I did NOT plan on was doing some long exposures of the stars and the Milky Way, such as this one. I had never done this before - and haven’t done it since - and didn’t know anything about it. It’s just not something I normally do. But it’s great to try new things, and I enjoyed the hell out of it!
So we stood on Cannon Beach by ourselves, beneath a million dead stars, and gunned long exposures into the depth of the night. Awesomeness!
