Description

Having only a few minutes of somewhat clear skies in the past few weeks, decided to pull out the camera and 200mm lens and go for the LMC with a mix of exposures. This structure is very visible to the naked eye here in the far north of New Zealand so with my camera at f/3.2, the object really comes out strong.
