A little over a week ago I was working with a great client in the Owens Valley on a private workshop at Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve. Our session was timed perfectly after a large storm passed through the area and we were treated to great star trail photography conditions. At the time the moon was at 20% visibility which provided just enough light to give the tufas some needed side lighting and made them a great foreground element. . Utilizing the star trail photography techniques discussed in my recent ebook we walked away in the dark dodging sagebrush with the images needed to make this final photo. Cold, a little smellier thanks to the sagebrush and picking up a few minor scratches here and I’d say the effort of was well worth it.
