Scouting some new areas I traveled far and wide around Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Searching out new compositions and landscape features to photograph the Milky Way with.
Just outside of Humbird, WI rests an old oak tree just off of HWY 12. The moment I saw this tree on Google Maps I knew I had to check it out. Driving past I couldn't believe what I had found. This was it, my next shot.
Waiting for the right moment I finally had everything come together, and luckily I was in the area. Working on a project for work in South Dakota, I only was able to get two days to shoot. With everything coming together I set out for my shot.
The conditions were perfect. I walked out into the field and was amazed at how dark the sky was. I framed my shot with the Milky Way arching over the tree. To the left I was lucky enough to capture the Northern Lights dancing in the northern sky. Adding that extra magical touch only the northern regions are blessed with.
Standing out under the stars I couldn't believe my vision had come to life. Starring at the silhouette of this tree against the night I had a rush of complete awe take over me. All of photography is capturing light and the way it interacts with our subject. To capture light from stars that sent their light out towards us 25,000 years ago is absolutely humbling. I watched as the Northern Lights danced in the night sky alongside the Milky Way and the old oak tree. It gave me a feeling as if I had captured The Tree Of Creation.
