Escaped for one night to Littleton, NH. Not going to lie, it was nice to get away, but it is 2020 everywhere. Businesses I have known for years, closed, places I used to enjoy going to off the path, now as if they are on the highway. Volumes of people, like me, looking to get away. The highlight of the trip (which do not get me wrong was a pleasant time away with my wife) was shooting the Milky Way. This is easier than ever due to technology and apps, but I have never done it. A couple of youtube videos, a random drive to find the darkest spot – turns out that is north of Littleon on a dirt road named Broomstick Hill Rd – what seems to be millions of stars and no one for miles and here we have my first venture into Milky Way photography. The core was a little low on the horizon, but the random, pitch-black field we found allowed us to see it with our naked eye, though it takes a 13-30 second exposure to pull it out as you see in these photos. I look forward to playing with this again, looking for a complimentary subject to place it with.
