Kynance Cove is close to England’s southernmost point and enjoys very dark skies, making it ideal for Milky Way photography. I visited on a night when the maximum visibility of the Milky Way core at 3.30am coincided with low tide, enabling me to capture a reflection of the Milky Way in a pool of water on the beach. Because there is no artificial light in the area, I needed an additional 8 minute exposure to bring out detail in the rocks and cliffs.
12 light frames and 7 dark frames each at F/2, 20 seconds and ISO 12,800 plus one exposure of F/2, 8 minutes, ISO 3200
