Murphy's Haystacks
Streaky Bay
South Australia

These granite inselberg rock formations arise abruptly from a paddock of sheep with open surrounds. On this cloudless night, I had one hour between sunset and moonrise to take as many exposures of the milky way high overhead. I was fortunate that there was enough time to trial a few compositions in the dark before settling on this panorama of 14 vertical images.
