"Rear View Milky Way"
Objects in mirror are not always closer than they appear 😅
The reflections in this image are real - what you see in the mirror is what the camera captured. I took this scene in Panoche Rd, a rural road in Northern California, sometime last year. Barely noticeable, the "winter" Milky Way it's actually visible above the mirror, in the sky - nice serendipity!
The image is a focus stack of two images taken one after another, that is, I took two photos of the same thing, each focused differently, for a better depth of view. In this case, the first photograph was focused on the landscape, sky and the big mirror, and the second one was focused on the car, so the mirror frame and smaller wide-angle mirror would also be in focus.
Hope you like it!
