Self-portrait under the Milky Way from Figure 8 Island.
We were looking for ghost crabs after dark when my daughter pointed out the Milky Way above. I decided to capture it the next night, but since there wasn't much foreground, I went for a self-portrait. The light from Wrightsville Beach was leaking in from the right, and wispy clouds were scattered through the sky.
This is a single exposure with the Fuji X-T1, 16mm at 2.0, ISO 1250, 20 seconds, and a bit of patience.
