The Star Collector by Aquilapse The Star Collector by Aquilapse
Taken on a cold winters night in the south Adelaide wine region known as McLaren Vale. Unfortunately because of the season, all the beautiful vineyards are cut back. So I did some driving around with a fellow friend and came across this. Keeping in mind where the milky way was positioned in the sky it seemed like a perfect setup.

This is just 4 vertical images stitched in photoshop (urgh! I need to add more shots from the foreground, lesson learnt!)

Edit: Thank you all so much for the features this image received!

*TheKoV86 brilliantly stitches four vertical images to make this gorgeous photograph of the night sky. Aptly titled as The Star Collector, it is fantastic how much we can make of the stars and the energy bursting forth. ( Suggested by sincebecomeswhy and Featured by 3wyl )

This is a beautiful photo; absolutely stunning. It must have been impossible to find a picture of the Milky Way that clear, or maybe it's just that you can't see the stars in America.

Hmmm ...the title sounds like one of the songs by the Monkees.  Excellent work on this, btw!  Thanks so much for sharing this!  I especially admire how the night sky looks underneath the old water tower.  :heart:

The watertower looks like a big pot and the stars look like steam rising off it.

Sorry for the late reply! Thank you!
I have seen some excellent astro-photography coming from NSW,  I wish I had the opportunity to test it out there myself. (Oh and Sydney has so much more interesting subjects compared to Adelaide imo) :D
