South of Lahaina, I found a palm tree where I could create some space between it and I, in line with the Milky Way, while keeping the composition clean and simple. The added challenge was that the road lie in between us. Waiting for 25 second gaps in traffic, I was finally rewarded with this image of a lone palm and the Milky Way, while oncoming cars added a perfect light source to the palm and shore-side grass.
