Malibu Milky Way with fog

I came out to Malibu to shoot Malibu Canyon Road head on with my 50mm. Given the focal length, this image had to be a panorama in order to work. For those that have shot here, the view down this line looks out almost directly south. I wanted the shot to be strong vertically so I shot the foreground around midnight as the fog crept in and the Milky Way around 1am once it was more vertical as it rotated further west. This image consists of 4 shots, 1 for the foreground and 3 for the Milky Way. The road looks tiny compared to the Milky Way but there is a car down at the bottom of the road showing just how large the entire scene is.

Nikon D750, Nikkor 50mm 1.8, foreground: f/4, 20 sec, ISO-1000, sky: f/2, 8 sec, ISO-4000
