Thunder Hole by Moonlight

A good friend of mine, Matthew Parks, composes a shot of the moon at Thunder Hole in Acadia National Park on July 19, 2014, 2:33 AM. The galactic core of the Milky Way had set a few minutes before, and a 48% moon was about 28° above the horizon illuminating the foreground.

Camera settings: 14mm, f/2.8, ISO 1600, 25 seconds for the stars and 100 seconds for the ground.

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, Promote Control, and Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod & ballhead. Dark frame subtraction via Pixel Fixer, RAW conversion in Lightroom, and exposure blended with Photoshop.
