Milkyway Stars at Port Mayaca Bridge Okeechobee Lake Vertorama

Sep 29, 2011 | Bridges & Roads, Nighttime HDR

Yesterday I went to shoot the train up in Jupiter and ended up shooting the Milkyway over in Okeechobee Lake at Port Mayaca. Goes to show… when it comes to photography and shooting, you never know where you’ll end up and what you’ll get. I totally wasn’t prepared for shooting stars. I left my flashlight and cable release at home, very important for shooting at night. But the most important thing was bug spray. Can’t be shooting after sunset without it, way to many mosquitoes, no see-ums and fire ants… needless to say I got bit up pretty bad, but it was worth it.
