Milky Way over Wotans Throne, North Rim Grand Canyon, Arizona
Mammoth Lakes, CA
This was the final image from Convict Lake that I was waiting to shoot. With the Moon fully below the horizon, this place was incredibly dark. I couldn't believe how bright the Milky Way was shining over the mountains. While shooting, I was experimenting a bit with shorter exposures to keep the stars from trailing, so having more than an extra stop of light definitely made a difference.
