From the elevated observation platform looking southward along the shoreline of Lake Clifton, Western Australia. Thrombolites (structures made by micro-organisms) cluster the shore, basked in the pale glow of the milkyway.
This was a 3 x 5 panel mosaic through a 50mm lens using a modified Canon EOS6D. All camera and lens settings were kept the same for all panels. A tracking mount was used for the sky and turned off for the foreground panels. Stitching in PTGui, colour calibration in PixInsight, noise reduction, saturation and some brightness / contrast adjustment in Photoshop. Details below.
