One of the more iconic locations in all of Death Valley. It is also the lowest point in North America, roughly where this photo was taken it sits almost 300ft below sea level. Even though this is a 2 hours drive from Las Vegas, and a location photographed by million people. I never truly caught a killer sunset from this location until last night. Even though we didnt find each other out in DV lol! @california_matt

Take my advice: don’t trust weather reports. Facing a cloudy day near my house yesterday, I found a spot about 75 miles southwest which, according to five different weather services, would be cloud free for the lunar eclipse. When I got to the spot, a state park overlooking the San Luis Reservoir, the sky was virtually cloudless. I weighted down my tripod and used my car to block the 40MPH gusty winds and framed my shot. About 45 minutes later (just before the eclipse covered more than 50% of the moon), a massive rain storm appeared out of nowhere. I drive for another 45 minutes, luckily caught a glimpse of the eclipsed moon, and then lost it altogether as a massive winter storm filled in all of the Bay Area. At least I got a few shots out of the trip!
"Possibly my favorite shot from my winter trip to Yosemite, definitely my favorite taken with a telephoto. Think this one has had the most success across social media in terms of likes and shares however that doesn’t really mean anything. It was included in publications from N-photo and Yosemite Conservancy which I find more rewarding. I looked for this shot every time we drove in and out of the Valley and we did so a LOT. This was the only time when the fog was this perfect and it only lasted for a short time before lifting from the valley floor. Definitely a right place right time sort of thing as you can sit at tunnel view all day (even when there is fog around) and not get conditions this ideal." @bay.photography
I started Milkyway Season 2018 at this spot with an epic solo road trip and my first outing shooting astro with my a7RII from a crop a6300. For the end of Milkyway Season 2018 I took a road trip with @freddy_V and this was one of our stops. At this point I had the entire season shooting with my A7RII, but it was only my second time shooting with the tracker. I now have an a7RIII and more of an understanding of how to use the tracker, and I cannot wait for the 2019 Milkyway season to kick off!!!! Wonder where I’ll take a trip to for the start of the season.. .
Both shots from exact same location, turned the tracker off for the foreground shot taken right after the sky shot.
