SINGULARITY- A point in the space-time continuum at which matter is infinitely dense.
Lone trees are my favorite subject for astrophotography foregrounds. I have imagined a unique (singular) shot with a lone tree and the arching galaxy for quite some time but had struggled to find the right tree. On a recent trip to Big Meadows at Shenandoah National Park this tree lined up perfectly. I had hoped to use tracked sky but the wind was just a bit too much (29mph) this night so I ended up with a lot of exposures to make my vision a reality (88 exposures). I waited for just before blue hr to do the foreground pano which was focus stack blended in post. Processed in LR and PS. Let me know what you think!
