Milky Way Above the Wellington South Coast

The Milky Way hangs low over Wellington's South Coast on a clear winter's night in New Zealand.

The weather forecast for the weekend wasn't looking good with strong winds and rain forecast. But thankfully this time they got it completely wrong. I ventured out in the early hours of Sunday morning to get this shot. I knew the Milky Way was going to be low in the sky, and wanted to capture it just sitting just above the hills of Wellington's rugged South Coast. This image is one frame of a time-lapse I shot that night.
