Starry Night on Foothills Parkway

I took my family up to Foothills Parkway tonight to star gaze and maybe see some of the fireworks at Booms Day in Knoxville. The fire works were too far away and were quite small but the stars were out in all of their glory. I shot this 30 second exposure with my camera on a tripod and lucked out in catching some traffic as it zoomed by. I was shooting with a 17mm wide angle at f-3.5 at ISO 1000. My white balance was set for  tungsten light to give the sky a blue color. It was a good clear night with a little bit of a chill in the air.

I really like this! Didn't even know that the milky way can be seen so clearly around here.

I really want to try this. Maybe the next time I am home in TN I will get a chance. April Wallis suggested this blog and I am very happy she did. I live just south of Miami but lived in East TN for 27 years. I have been seriously into photography now for about 12.
