A photographer traveled to New Zealand to capture these extraordinary pictures of the Milky Way.
Grey chow, a 31-year old project engineer from Malaysia, travelled to the popular destination, which is declared as a dark sky reserve.
This means that the light conditions are perfect to capture images in amazing high quality and allowed the part-time travel photographer to see the milky way in the best visibility.
Grey said: “New Zealand is a beautiful country with lots of beautiful scenery.
“As a landscape photographer, I always wanted to plan a photography trip to see the amazing views there and now my dream has been fulfilled.”
The photographer believes that planning is key.
Grey said: “I always believe planning is crucial in landscape and nightscape photography.
“Before reaching the location, I will try to get as much information as possible, things such as possible angles and direction, the Milky Way position at that time, the tides and also to be well prepared for the cold too.
“I try to be there early, just to scout around the location and explore for any possible composition.”
Grey often travels with his wife in there camper van to different locations such as Mount cook National Park, also in New Zealand.
He said: “Sometimes we parked our camper van directly at the shooting location, under the clear sky with millions of sparkling stars.
“We just needed to go of the door and setup our camera to take the photo when the timing is right.
“It’s very convenient and also an unforgettable experience driving the camper van here.”
