06/01/13 Island Beach Stars

Posted: June 2, 2013 in Uncategorized

As I pulled up to the guard shack at Island Beach State Park at 1 AM, I figured I had no shot to get into the park at this time.  But, I caught a break, the guard was sleeping in his chair. So I just rolled my Subaru very quietly right on past. I had never been in the park after dark.  I pulled off the main road and found a dark area. After a few shots, I realized the Milky Way was visible on this super clear night. That’s pretty rare with all the light pollution in Ocean County. Then a fox decided to keep me company while I photographed the skies. It was a good night.
