New on 500px : Dakota Territory Milky Way by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

“Dakota Territory Milky Way”
The historical Ben Clare United Methodist Church, Valley Springs, South Dakota with May 25th’s clear sky at 1:53 am.
This is one of my favorite go to places for star shots, it is relatively close to where I live but just far enough to where you can see the milky may with the naked eye very well. You may remember from over a year ago my first shot to do well on this website (500px), was this same church during a Kp7 aurora borealis…
I have wanted to do a milky way shot here since last year but by the time I tried it was too late in the summer and the galactic center had already moved too far south to get it in the frame like this. This shot is a single exposure taken with a Canon EOS 6D and Canon EF 16-35 L II Lens at 16mm 15 second f/3.2 10,000iso. Tired of reading comments from ignorant people that think everything is PhotoShop, I decided to record a video with my phone of the camera taking this exact photo. You can see it here on my YouTube –
