Description

The winter Milky Way (as seen in the northern hemisphere) is photographed above a dam in Turkey. Extended above the snow-covered mountains is the zodiacal light (sunlight reflected from dust in the Solar System plane). As noted by the photographer “Caybogazi Dam in the foreground is located in Gombe near Elmali. The snow capped Akdag Peak is one of the highest places in Toros Mountains at 3017 meters high. The water in the reservoir is for irrigating the apple orchards and in fact Elmali means the home of apples.”

    I used a Canon EOS 5D camera at ISO 1600 and a 17 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens at f/3.5. This picture is a panorama of three individual side-by-side shos of 65 seconds each.
