Seen here from the magical Rannerdale Bluebells, a staggering 100,000 light years across - the Milky Way rises up over the fells just before Dawn, completing this ethereal night time scene that is only possible for 1 or 2 weeks of the year. An image that took nearly 2 years from visualisation to completion, I had to wait for the correct moon phase, the bluebells to bloom, and the sky to be clear and dark. During the first half of May there is only a short 1hr window where it gets properly dark, in the second half it doesn't get dark at all. What made this image really quite difficult to capture, is that many things have to come together at the same time in such a small window of opportunity!

About the photographer - Dom is a 26 year old astro-photographer from the Lake District, UK. He loves nothing more than travelling to remote and wild locations and capturing incredible dark skies using his astro-modified camera and specialist sky tracking equipment.
Dom says “I do what I do because I am fascinated by what’s out there, the aim of my work isn’t to show people what’s there that you can see, but what’s there that you can’t see! I also love inspiring people to get out and spend time under the stars, it will change your perspective on the world and is very healing!”
