That’s very amazing, and I am impressed with your perseverance. Sometimes you have to go above and beyond and stick to what you want, to get what you want. Very nice work here.

That is one of the most stunning milky way shots I've ever come across. What an amazing job you did capturing that - well done!

I first conceptualized this shot in June 2014, when I first started Nightscape Astrophotography. The first panorama with a specific composition that I envisioned in my head. The Waxing Crescent Moon setting between Sugarloaf Rock with the Milky Way just above. A shot that is only possible 2 weeks in the year.

I have been to Sugarloaf Rock every year since 2014 in attempts to capture this scene. Bad weather, cloud cover, other photographers and poor planning resulted in failure 3 years in a row. On the 4th year, September 2018, I saw an opportunity to capture a scene that has become somewhat of an obsession.

An amalgamation of everything I've learnt in my career as a Nightscape Astrophotographer, this shot, to me, is my most significant. Planning, understanding, perseverance, persistence and, most importantly, good luck have finally allowed me to put this scene to rest.

I have finally captured the first composition I ever dreamt of.
