The Heavens Erupt by Nate-Zeman The Heavens Erupt by Nate-Zeman
To purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print please visit my website @ WWW.NATEZEMAN.COM

The Milky Way rises from behind a large sea stack on the Olympic Peninsula.

I usually don't do a lot of night photography, but this was the scene just a few feet from our campsite so I really couldn't pass it up. This is probably the most visible I've seen the milky way to my naked eye.

Second Beach - Olympic National Park - La Push, Washington

This is, by far, the best thing about camping/backpacking -- and there are a lot of good things. The first time I saw the sky like this was so unexpected. Love it.

Amazing vision!
When seeing that picture, I notice how much left of seeing when glimpsing the night sky!
I live in São Paulo, in Brazil and we see little star (just the more diamonds).
I feel almost blind when noticing what left of seeing!!

Nope, sorry, still nothing intelligible :(
Just variations of the "wow, wha... oh, WOW" theme.
Hate it when that happens and love it at the same time.
Amazing Nate and a totally genius composition :clap:
