Here on the Mendonoma Coast we celebrate our lack of light pollution. That allows for some wonderful night sky views. Allen Vinson is the latest coast photographer to try his hand at photographing the Milky Way and he got a bonus "shooting star." Allen said this first photo was a 20 second exposure.
Allen took another photo which shows some of The Sea Ranch.
I asked Allen how he photographed this. He wrote,
Thanks to Allen for allowing me to share his beautiful photos with you here. To see more of Allen's nature photography, here is the link: http://allenvinson.smugmug.com/
