Stunning Milky Way Formation Above the Isle of Wight

1

“Stunning Milky Way formation above the Isle of Wight : The Milky Way shines in mesmerising colourful patterns above the Isle of Wight in these stunning photographs. Photographer Chad Powell used a DSLR camera to capture images of the spectacular constellation above the familiar beach scenes of England’s largest island. The 22-year-old, who shot the pictures over a year of stargazing on the island, often stayed up until dawn to catch the most dramatic sky-scapes.

The DSLR camera enhanced the Milky Way from the white strip visible to the naked eye into an explosion of colourful lights. Photographer Chad, a graphic designer from Ventnor, Isle of Wight, used foregrounds of abandoned theme parks, harbours and lighthouses against the illuminated sky. Chad Powell: “The perfect conditions to take these pictures are a clear sky on a moonless night. Light pollution needs to be minimal too, unfortunately in Britain there are very few areas of dark sky, especially in England”. – Barcroft Media
