Milky Way Over Roseman

Today’s post concludes my recent photo trip to Madison County, Iowa to photograph the covered bridges in fall colors and at night (and with playing with my new drone!). Today’s two images were captured during my last night in Madison County. Although the Milky Way’s galactic core are not nearly as visible or impressive as it would have been in the summer months, it still excites me to be able to photograph our heavenly skies over historic landmarks like the Roseman Covered Bridge. Here are a couple of my favorite images from my last night’s shoot.

I first set up to shoot the Milky Way as it stretched from behind the Roseman bridge, using a small amount of light painting to light the bridge and surrounding foliage:

After shooting some images from this position, I moved to the far end of the bridge and shot the Milky Way, including a small portion of the bridge’s roof and the creek below the bridge:

This photo trip was a lot of fun! I may try to make it back next year, when the galactic core of the Milky Way is colorful and much more impressive.
