Paean Ng PerthlingPerthling, by Paean Ng


Many Earthlings live their lives without ever seeing the Milky Way. Light pollution from major cities spread hundreds of kilometers, engulfing the stars, galaxies and other celestial objects.

I am blessed to be living in Perth, Western Australia. The most isolated city in Australia, where dark skies are just an hour out of the city and the raw WA landscape gives a real sense of the outback.

On this night, I traveled to the Lancelin Sand Dunes, 2 hours North of Perth, and captured an image that I have been trying for over a year, a self portrait under the full arch of the Milky Way.
