Pedernales Falls Under the Milky Way

Pedernales Falls State Park

I try to scout locations before I shoot, expecially when I'll be there in middle of the night. For this Milky Way photograph, I knew the landscape well. After all, Pedernales Falls State Park is practically my back yard! Using a long exposure to illuminate the foreground and a shorter, higher ISO exposure to bring out the stars, I blended the two into this final product. I'm pleased to say this scene was the grand prize winner for the Texas Hill Country Alliance's 2013 calendar! Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
