Marine Life Milky-way - "A Photobomb like no other" - I had a very interesting experience last night. I started off shooting at Sand Beach in Acadia National Park, while I was setup taking shots of the milky way overhead in the darkness I noticed a shadowy figure moving in front of my feet. I shined my flashlight down and there was a Harbor seal (at least thats what I think it is) that came out of the water and layed down right in front of me, only a few feet away.
I backed up and tried to get a shot of him under the Milky way. He then waddled closer and followed me. I made a new buddy. It was quite difficult to get a good shot of him in the dark because he kept moving his head. I ended up taking 2 shots, one real short exposure with a real high ISO (10,000) and another 30 second exposure at ISO 3200 to capture the night sky above him and then merged the 2 exposures.
