Above the Tower
This image shows the International Space Station (ISS) flying over Horton Tower in Dorset on a misty evening in October. This image makes me think about the crew confined to the space station, looking down at the Earth below, while flying over this tower which is believed to have been built with the intention of being used as an observatory to look back up at the night sky. I wanted to use a longer focal length to capture more detail in the Milky Way core behind the tower. During the two exposures I shot for the sky, I was able to perfectly capture the ISS fly directly over the tower. Although the mist didn’t help with capturing the finer details of the core, it did add mystery to the final image, as did the tower’s lights. This image is comprised of a long two-minute exposure for the foreground and then blended with the two tracked 60-second exposures for the night sky.
