Last Sunday I spent the night at Hot Creek. It was clear as a bell at sunset - then the clouds I needed for sunset rolled in just as the Milky Way was lining up. 3 years ago when I first started shooting the Milky Way this would've totally bummed me out but I've learned to roll with the punches and just enjoy being out there under the stars. And I actually really like the clouds in this one. I struggled with how much to lighten up the foreground so I would love to hear your thoughts. This is 16 images stacked, ISO 6400, F2.5, 10 secs.
