Sankaty Tower and Milky Way

Sankaty Tower and Milky Way

Sometimes the lighthouse that is being photographed is simply too bright to make a decent star image as well. The Sankaty Lighthouse on Nantucket is one such light that is really bright. To compensate for this, you sometimes must shoot from directly beneath the tower looking straight up, and occasionally the star Gods are nice and gives you the chance to capture a photograph like this.
