Early Bird - Trona Pinnacles Milky Way

I guess it’s not the early bird if it’s an all nighter. Had a crammed but successful mission shooting from Sat night to Sun am. Took about 1000 photos in the 12 hour session but mind you most were for the timelapses. We started at Red Rock and Cantil for some star trails then made our way out to Trona for some more trails and to catch the rise of the Milky Way. I was really only able to capture MW 2 comps before the sky started getting washed out by the rising sun. If you read my last MW post, you can now probably see why I love the early season positioning. I love how it sweeps horizontal across the frame making it perfect for a landscape oriented shot. Framed this one with the pinnacles in the backdrop along with one of the trails leading out. The sky was already starting to take on a bit of twilight hues. When I get around to posting the second shot, the sky will be a much richer blue. Hopefully some of you were able to catch some MW shots to kick off the season with a bang. Nikon D750, Nikkor 20mm 1.8, f/2, 15 sec, ISO-6400
