“Milky Way Lighthouse”

A recent photo of the Milky Way is making headlines. And what’s so amazing about the shot is it was lit by a lighthouse.

Captured near the Guilderton Lighthouse in Western Australia, near the city of Perth, this image was shot by photographer Trevor Dobson. It’s been reported that he used a crop sensor Nikon D5100, paired with a 35 mm lens, with settings of ISO 3200, f/2 and 13 seconds; the final image has a 150-megapixel resolution and stretches 200 degrees.

Dobson titled the image “Milky Way Lighthouse.” And I’m sure he’s in good spirits knowing that his work is making its rounds.

Until Next Time…
