From Rafael about this image:
PANO / BLEND
I have always wanted to capture the reflection of the Milky Way in a lake, but strong winds during the night dominate the entire the region were I live. This night, fortunately, there were no winds blowing so the water was still, giving this mirror-like perfect condition for the shot. I have set-up my camera in the tripod and started to take pictures. As soon as I started, heavy clouds started to cover the sky almost ruining the chance of getting the shot. The clouds can still be seen in the right portion of the picture, but I finished just in time befre the sky was completely covered. The night was very dark as there was no moon in the sky so I had to use a higher exposure time for the foreground, and this is the cause of the star trails in the water, while the sky was shot with a shorter exposure time to get pinpoint stars.
The two brightest objects that can be seen under the Milky Way core and just above the mountain are the star Antares and the planet Saturn. This shot was taken in August/16 in the Itaitiaia National Park, Brazil.
Canon 5D mkII + Samyang 14mm f/2.8
Panorama made with 8 exposures (4 pictures in portrait postion from left to right for the sky and 4 pictures in portrait position from left to right for the foreground)
