Morning Milky Way

In April 2009 when the summer Milky Way was present in the early morning sky, I took several images using my Pentax Spotmatic with 50mm f/1.4 Takumar lens. This frame shows what can be captured with the lens wide open to capture the sky frozen against the landscape. This 2 minute exposure shows that film can still do the job.

The Elite Chrome 200 film was pushed +1 stop EI ISO 340.

Oh yea, this was shot from my front yard. Living away from civilization has its benefits.
