The Rock and the Milky Way

This image of the Milky Way rising over the Atlantic in Biddeford Pool illustrates one of the challenges of shooting the stars. The narrow depth of field afforded by shooting wide open (in this case f2.8) necessitates that you will need to take multiple pictures at different focal points to ensure you get a final image that will capture both a foreground and background that is sharp.
