Our Galactic Centre

Milky Way and Mars over Durdle Door. I captured this image from the clifftop by making five overlapping frames, each exposed for 20 seconds at F/2, using a 24mm lens in landscape orientation. I then stitched the five frames together in Lightroom to create a vertical panorama. A Perseid meteor, distinctly green in colour, was captured on the fourth frame against the Milky Way. Both Mars and the Milky Way are reflected in the English Channel, creating shining paths of light in the dark sea.
