PETE COLLINS, CHATEAU DE ST GERMAIN DE CONFOLENS, FRANCE, 17 SEPTEM­BER 2017

Pete says: “I shot this im­age of the Milky Way over the ru­ins of a 12th-cen­tury cas­tle dur­ing a visit to Astro­farm in dark­est ru­ral France. An­drew Davies of Astro­farm told me the flood­lights were turned off ev­ery night at 11.30pm, so I ar­rived at 11 to po­si­tion the Milky Way where I wanted it, then waited for the lights to go out.”

Equip­ment: Canon EOS 6D DSLR cam­era, Samyang 14mm lens.
