Eagle Rock milky way, Warner Springs

Here is the first edited shot of my outing Sat night. This is a 50mm version with the foreground shot at twilight using a few frames for various light painting on the eagle along with myself up on top. The light on the underside helps show the textures as it is a bit flat without any ambient light. The sky was then shot once the MW aligned around 10pm. This is a better spot to shoot during the latter part of the MW season as the best view faces out SW. Not the darkest spot but one of the coolest rock formations I’ve shot under the stars. By the time the core aligns in this direction, it starts to get washed out by the light pollution coming up on the horizon but it was still awesome to put this one together. Foreground: 3 frames at f/8, 25 sec, ISO-250. Sky: 12 frames stacked at f/2, 5 sec, ISO-10,000. All taken with the Nikon D750 and 50mm 1.8.
