Milky Way over field in Ucon, Idaho

Submitted by jimwcoleman

This is a composite photo. It was taken on August 20, 2017 - the night before the total solar eclipse of 2017.

The Milky Way was captured using a Canon 60D at f2.8 with a 10mm lens, ISO 1600 for 30 seconds, unguided.  The foreground is a family member's front yard in Ucon, Idaho. There is a field across the street and stacked bales of hay can be seen in the distance.

The skies in Idaho are truly magical!

I like this shot too. Colors are pretty neat! Looks like big sky country..

The colors came from shooting at the Deneb area of the sky with a modded DSLR ... it really picked up the reds!
