I took this image of the Milky Way over Willow Bend in late autumn.  There was a bright light positioned on another barn about 200 yards away, and although I found this unexpected light intrusive to having a dark sky to shoot the Milky Way, I instead used the barn light to help light-paint my foreground.  For me, night sky photography isn’t just about subject matter.  It’s also the mood I want to create.
