A truly magical shoot! I arrived at Kimmeridge on this spectacularly clear night in early May, at the point of low tide. There wasn’t a breath of wind, so the sea was completely flat and motionless, creating a wonderful reflection of Clavell Tower and the Milky Way above, as well as Antares, Saturn and Mars to the right. I managed to capture all my shots before the tide came back in, but not quickly enough to avoid wet feet! The sky was a composite of 7x 1-minute exposures at ISO 6,400, f/4, 24mm, tracked on my Vixen Polarie. The foreground was a combination of a tracked and an untracked 4-minute exposures at ISO 1,600.
