The Milky Way rises above a granite outcrop in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. Settling down for the first shot of the evening, I decided to leave my backpack in the exposures, recognising the presence of the one person taking the photographs.
Stars can be seen reflecting in the bottom left rock pool. Gazing in to these rock pools with stars and the Milky Way reflecting is like looking through a portal in to another universe. Up in the sky there is the Eta Carina Nebula in the far right top, Southern Cross and Pointers nearby and near the head of The Emu which is virtually sitting on the rock.
The colour of the rock jumps out at you under the moonlight which is illuminating the landscape and giving the night sky some of its blue hue.
