My first Milky Way

by Julie Domingo September. 28, 2016 2316 views

I'm currently thriving in this city where Milky Way is impossible...

Well, hopefully that can magically change though. *wink


Imagine my joy and happiness when I first saw it!

This may sound cliche and stuff....but truly it was a magical experience for me...

Like watching a beautiful canvass of galaxy far far away...

Starry starry night...dreamy night even!


And tonight is just a good night to remember an otherworldly night which happened somewhere in New Zealand's South Island.

My first Milky Way experience

Looking up more to this.

So jealous! I've been wanting to find a milky way to do a shoot but don't know how to go about it or capture it properly!

Wow! Amazing capture, Julie.
I am yet to take one. How did you locate it exactly?

Thanks Ram!!! Excited to see your captures!!!
Ahmmm we didn't use any locator though i heard there's a site for that 😬. We just got blessed during our night road trips while driving around NZ's South Island, mostly in outskirts around 8pm'ish onwards. We've seen the milky way for like 4x just doing that 😊

I had two visions like these in my last visit to Krygyzstan when I was 3600 m high on the mountains and it was amazing. Great picture
