Night Sky in Death Valley

I’ve been away for the last week and caught a bad cold on the trip.  I got home last night and I’m feeling better today although I  don’t have the energy for a long blog post. Sorry.

I’ll be back next week and I promise to provide more photos and info.  Here’s one image to whet your appetite.   This is a 20 second exposure at f/2.2 and ISO 1600, under the darkest skies I’ve ever seen.  The Milky Way was easily visible even though the brightest part was below the horizon.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some photos!

  1. Well hurry up and get well soon please, Ed – we’re on tenterhooks for the rest of the shots and the info! (Appetites duly whetted by that amazing night sky image!)

  2. Nice Milky Way shot Ed. Glad you got to shoot out west under dark skies (a lot different than Central Florida, huh!) Looking forward to seeing more shots after you get better.

I'd love to hear from you, Please leave a reply!
