Milky Way

April 17, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I've wanted to try my hand at night sky photography for a while and finally took the time to make it happen.

I wandered down into Gold Butte National Monument (just south of Mesquite, Nevada) to a place called Little Finland. I got there before dark and scouted out a couple possible spots where I thought the rock formations would line up with the Milky Way once it came up. After a few hours of sleep I got up at 4:00AM to head back out. I shot several series of images so I could stack and average them to reduce noise and then I shot a few with a bit of light on the foreground rock formations to bring out the details there. 

This image is a composite of five of the sky images and one for the foreground.
