    hobby photography: Bodie Island Lighthouse with Milky Way

    I've been wanting to get this shot for a while! This weekend was the New Moon, so we took a long weekend trip to the beach. This lighthouse has unique timing on the light so you can get a good long exposure without blowing out the shot.

    Not bad. Here in Holland there is so much artificial light everywhere that you can not see the milkyway at all. Come to think of it, not sure if I ever seen it with my own eyes, other then pictures.

      Come to California. We have the sierra mountains and deserts with lots of open space and little artificial light.

        I was in California a long time ago (and Nevada, Arizona and Utah) and I have been in very dark locations (OK that sounds a lot weirder then it actually is) but it never occurred to me back then to look up in the sky and watch the Milky Way. But who knows, maybe again some day.

          The first time you see it, you might think it's just a band of clouds up there in the sky. For me, it took my photo buddies to point it out to me and I still could have sworn it was a mass of clouds. The camera proved me wrong.

            I would concur. Growing up in New Mexico I had plenty of experience with being in a place with a pretty dark sky and it is difficult to identify with the naked eye. Somehow a photo makes it more clear what you are looking at/seeing.

            Northern lights are the same thing. First time I ever saw that I was SURE it was clouds moving fast and reflecting light from below weird. It was only after seeing it a few more times that I realized what I was actually seeing.

              Jeff, the more north you go the louder the auroras get. Up near Fairbanks it was a steady crackling sound
