With it part of my MW2019 checklist, I knew I couldn’t pass it up when the day arrived. So even though I am sick, hackin’ and coughin’ the whole way up the trail(sorry to the guests who were around me ), I pushed through it and made my way to the top. Cloud cover dispersed, then gathering again a couple hours before showtime. I was freaking out, thinking I’d have to return and try again. But to my surprise, the available moonlight gave the clouds a look that felt so dreamy to me. I kept thinking of the Dreamworks opening. “Let’s wait for it to rise above the clouds then.” I thought to myself.⠀ ⠀ Really stoked to see this one come to life. Such a rad feeling to achieve something you have thought about repeatedly.⠀ ⠀ Thank you, Yosemite, for opening your beautiful sky for me once again.⠀ ⠀ EXIF⠀ ⠀ Foreground - 330" f/4 ISO1000⠀ ⠀ Sky (x15 to eliminate noise ) - 25" f/2.8 ISO10000⠀ ⠀ Shot with Canon 6D & Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II @16mm⠀ ⠀ Processed in LR, stacked in SLS, blended in PS⠀ --⠀ #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #milkyway #nightphotography #night_excl #amazingphotohunter #fantasticuniverse #nightphotography #nightimages #night_excl #longexposurephotography
