Those of you who follow Light Stalking regularly will probably recall photographer Gavin Heffernan whose time-lapse work we have featured before. Well, never one to rest on his laurels, Gavin has been at it again. The below images of the milky way shot from one of the most light-polluted cities in the world – Los […]
