Interesting Photo of the Day: Vertical Panorama of Milky Way Over Acadia National Park

The night sky can be so magical, and photographers who spend their time taking pictures of it not only get to experience this magic, but give viewers an in-depth look into the mystical features found only in the dark hours. Landscape and studio photographer Mike Taylor focuses on astrophotography and scenic/nature images and has spent much of his time capturing the moon, stars, the Milky Way, occasional meteor, and the Northern Lights. His image of the Milky Way at Bass Harbor Lighthouse in Acadia National Park is just one stunning example of his work:

This is a five image vertical panorama of the Milky Way stretching across the night sky.

Taylor used a Nikon D600 with a 14-24mm lens, set at 14mm, f/2.8, 5×25 secs, ISO 4000.

As Taylor writes on his website:

“The atmosphere of the night, the sights and sounds, are so very contrary from normal daytime hours that it is literally a different world – a radical world of diffused light, excessive shadows and noises that you will simply never see or hear when the sun is up. These existential awakenings will spark your inner child to marvel at the world again.”
