Wesley Liikane caught this shot on the last weekend in June, when he hosted a photography workshop at a very dark site, Algonquin Park in central Ontario, Canada. He wrote:
… at the second location I saw this stairway leading into the Milky Way and figured I would give it a try. I used multiple exposures, as I did not want to have light ruining the others night vision. One exposure was 155 seconds to let the natural light bring out the foreground while the other image was a 35-second exposure.
You can see the result here. Beautiful. Thank you, Wesley.
