Stars of Milford Sound

Stars of Milford Sound

The night I had in Milford Sound was just like the weather I experienced the previous 4 days on the Track: perfect. I had hoped since booking my Milford Track experience that the sky over Milford Sound would be clear, allowing me to do some astrophotography. I wasn't disappointed, as only a few thin clouds were visible over the sound. In this image, crafted from a composite of 30 frames, the stars arch in both directions given how I positioned the camera with regards to the North and South stars. The clouds helped highlight Mitre Peak, and the moonlight even made the snow capped mountain over the Sound visible. This image was made using my new Nikon D800E, and would not have been possible to this degree with a lesser camera.
