Milky Way above The Cobb

This image has a tale and a half to tell! I arrived at Lyme Regis just after the moon had set one March morning, at around 3am. I set up on The Cobb and tried to figure out how best to avoid the bright white lights from the harbour below. Looking east for a moment, a huge fireball streaked across the sky, lighting up the entire landscape. My camera was not taking a photo at the time, but had it have been, I expect the resulting frame would have been completely overexposed. I’d never seen anything like it before.

The sky in this shot was composed of 10x stacked 30s exposures at 14mm, f/4 and ISO 6,400. The foreground was a six minute exposure at ISO 400.

A4 and limited edition mounted prints are printed on high quality Fuji glossy photo paper. Larger prints are available, printed on durable, scratch-proof and weather-proof vinyl, mounted on a 3mm thick aluminium composite board, creating a light, strong and unfussy product.
