This is 8 separate exposures, without moving the camera. So happy with how this photo turned out. To begin with this night took numerous hours of planning. When we had finally found a location, we had an hour window from which we would have no moon or sun effecting our shot. We then needed the milky way to be in the right spot which we were lucky enough to have middle of summer. After getting our shot of the stars we then taped a headlamp to the bottom of my drone and flew it above the ruins to illuminate them from the sky. The red from the image was 2 separate photos, one placed inside the chimney to light the area around it and one placed behind the person standing inside the ruins. After that we were doing some more night sky shots so we had more options when a massive comet came past and lit up the sky. You can see the green trails they leave which was amazing to see in person, the first time I had actually captured one with my camera in this much detail. Last we used light painting to light the foreground of the image. Over 6 hours of editing and learning went into post production alone and it was my first time dealing with luminosity masks which was really exciting. If you read this far thank you!! A lot of effort went into this. Huge thanks to @rivergirl87 and her brother and also @k_packs for help with this shot.
