Almost a year has passed since my astrophotography trip to Italy. As spring is in the air again, it is time to refresh my memories of this beautiful journey.
This image was taken at one of the most photographed spots in Tuscany. You can find thousends of daylight images from this place, but despite its perfect orientation, I found no Milky Way nightscapes.
Light pollution probably is the reason why even local nightscapers do not shoot there at night, but even with very high humidity, I found it manageable with my light pollution filter.
I am glad that my planning proved to be correct and enabled me to capture my intended composition.
