I decided I would go shoot the Milky Way real quick last night before the moon came up since it was so clear out. I saw these old grain bins a while back and talked with the owner who allowed me to shoot this awesome foreground.

📸: Sony A6100 with Rokinon 12mm

Foreground- f/11, ISO 100, 2” exposure shot at blue hour.
Background: f/4, ISO 500, 300” exposure tracked with the iOptron Skytracker Pro

All images edited in Lightroom and blended in Photoshop.
