That 395 house - Eastern Sierras

I’ve shot this house every time I go up to the Sierras but this one is probably my favorite thus far. Anyone who shoots here knows that you get a ton of lights from cars coming down the 395 and if you’re not trying to light paint it’s a royal pain, especially during the late MW season when you need to catch the core around 8pm before it dips behind the mountains. We shot the foreground after sunset then returned when it got dark to shoot the Milky Way. Shooting the foreground with the last available light allowed for a few things; to incorporate the snow capped mountains into the shot, to use the bushes as leading lines into the scene, and of course to reduce noise and maximize depth of field. Both shots were combined to what you see here. Nikon D750, Nikkor 14-24, foreground: f/11, ½ sec, ISO-500, sky: f/2.8, 15 sec, ISO-6400
