From Jason about this image:
STORY: Taken in West Virginia on the New River Gorge, August 28th, 2019. Sandstone Falls is the largest waterfall on the New River, spanning 1500 ft across. This specific spot was actually taken at the smaller less photographed part of falls right next to the boardwalk, about 2 min from the parking area. I shot both areas, but I really liked how this one lined up with the Milky Way. As always, I scoped out the area the day before and figured out all my compositions. This one and the main falls area were perfect for the Milky Way, at least during this time of year. The weather had been cloudy here the whole day I went to check it out but luckily for me it was supposed to clear the next day. I got there before sunset to take some pics, then sat in the car till it was dark enough. Sure enough, the weather report was right and the skies were perfect. It was really dark out here so I had to bump my ISO up a bit from what I am used to. However, stacking when using high ISOs over 4000, really helps with noise. I was really stoked to shoot this spot as I did not see much for night images from here. Very surprising given the easy access and beauty of it.
EXIF: Nikon D850 w/Nikkor 14-24mm lens. 12 image stack using SLS. 25 seconds at f/2.8, ISO 8000, 14mm. Edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.
