Interesting Photo of the Day: Milky Way Island

The Pacific Northwest is renowned globally for its incredible beauty and striking landscapes. Photographer Kevin Shearer has trekked out to some of the most remote coasts of the region in order to fully grasp all that the nature has to offer. Based on the results Shearer managed to capture in just a few exposures, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that the hike was well worth the effort:

More reminiscent of a colorful fantasy than anything we’re able to see with the naked eye, this image was made with a simple Nikon D810 equipped with a 12-24mm lens. Using a long exposure paired with corrective software, Shearer captured the fine details of the night sky without any light pollution interference.

Regardless of whether this image underwent heavy digital manipulation or advanced HDR processing, one thing is for sure – today’s inspiring picture is all the motivation any person needs to get out of town and explore what sort of small treasures the planet has to offer.
