This was taken on the rocks below Te Raekaihau Point, close to Lyall Bay, Wellington.
The light to the bottom left comes from Wellington Airport.
This is a vertical panorama of six single photos, showing the Galactic Core of our own Galaxy pretty much to the center of the image. Compared to the last post, this one shows the Milky-Way as a straight line, as it actually is, seen from our position in the Galaxy.
The difference lies in the viewing angle. As we (and our cameras) see it vertical rather than horizontal, we don't need to "compensate" so much for a crooked horizon. This sort of image is taken with very wide angle lenses, or even fish-eye lenses, to get as much of the sky into the frame as possible. And this results in distortions which cause either an arc shaped Milky-Way or a concave shaped horizon, if Milky-Way and Horizon are positioned parallel-ish. If they are on an angle towards each others, the distortion is still there, but not really obvious as it's moved into the open sky parts.
Of course this one is available in printed version, please contact me if you're interested
