I cannot imagine how you could have seen the milky way at sunrise or sunset. Is this two images fused with Photoshop?

Behind The Lens

Location
The picture was taken near Pias, a small village in Alentejo, south of Portugal, considered one of the best areas for astrophotography in Europe
Time
Was made at dawn, between 1am and 2am, in August when the Milky Way is more visible in this part of northern hemisphere
Lighting
I wanted a simple image, with few elements, and this setting was magical the clouds and light in the village, helped enough
Equipment
I use a Nikon d810, a Tokina 16-28mm 2.8 and a Manfrotto 055 Pro tripod
Inspiration
I am a lover of the night sky, recently did a project about the sky in Portugal, you can search for "I Capture The Starry Skies Of Less-Polluted Places" and this is a continuation of this project
Editing
all landscape photography has a lot of post production, and this too, this consists of several photos, one for the 1st plan and a panorama of 8 photos to the Milky Way
In my camera bag
My backpack is a mess, in addition to the Nikon D810, the Tokina 16-28mm 2.8, also use the famous 50mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.4 and as the second body a D7000, my tripod Manfrotto 055, flash, some filters, some batteries, biscuits, cleaning kits ...
Feedback
Go out! Go out! Find the place with less light pollution and admire the wonderful night sky, then, take some photos!
