Cosmic Rift

Even at the end of a long day of shooting in the wee hours of the morning it’s important to never let your ‘visual awareness’ down. After spending 8 hours running various time-lapse sequences at Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park I was mid drive back to Yosemite Valley around 2am with my sunroof open and noticed that the Milky Way was directly overhead. Even though I was exhausted I decided capturing more photos was worth the stretch and set my camera gear back up.  I was not disappointed with that decision.  The ultra wide 15mm lens I was using, even when pointed straight up at the sky, was wide enough to capture  trees on the mountainside as my foreground element.
