I shared a photograph of this bus from a different angle a couple of weeks ago and I thought I would share one from a different vantage point. This Bus and Car at the Car Forest were two of the most popular vehicles in the area as they sit atop the hill and offered an unobstructed view of the surrounding landscape and sky. I realize it’s hard to see but the northern end of the Milky Way Galaxy can be seen just left of the bus. The light pollution in the area made it hard to bring out the details of the galaxy.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 Lens set on 17mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/5.6, shutter speed at 20 seconds and the ISO set at 5000. I used a tripod for stability. I lit the inside of the bus with a string of fairy lights and the inside of the car with some tea lights. The outside of the vehicles was brightened in post production. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
