I don’t know how many…

I don’t know how many times I have watched the sunset here but it’s countless! No matter the crowds of people and the journey to get there, I have gone out of my way to sit on the rock to watch the sun disappear beyond the horizon. What place in this world does that for you?? —- 📸 @ftw_outdoorlife —- . . . . . #makemomentshappen #sheadventures #radgirlslife #getoutstayout #liveyouradventure #everytrailconnects #theoutbound #keepitwild #adventurevisuals #stayandwander #choosemountains #nationalparkgeek #she_explores #1020adventures #utahunique #idratherbeinnature #utahhdotcom #herwanderfullife I #outdoorbella #peoplewhohike #mtnchicks #thehikemovement #TODSL #wonderfulwildwomen #whyihike #wildernessbadass #peoplewhooutdoor

What are your thoughts on…

What are your thoughts on Internet Bullies? How do you react to them? —- I’ve been overwhelmed the last few days between being sick (I’m still on the tail end), to working on all my client work, to running the Milky Way Chasers Night Sky Awards, working CES and getting a video edited from that for my client, to throwing a HUGE influencer event next week for Shot Show. Add to that personal issues here at home, and then the last couple days of being bullied and harassed. I’m not sure how I found time to edit this actually lol! — I want to thank everyone who has reached out for the amazing support.. it’s definitely been a helping hand through this.. I’ve learned a lot the last few days and the biggest one is that no matter how hard you try, no matter how good your intentions are, there’s always going to be someone not happy. I have to learn to accept that and move on. —- This was from a trip in October with my girl @missjessbess.. I had seen pictures of this area for a couple years and was determined to find it. I knew generally where it was and had explored looking for it the previous summer with @smpetersonphotography & @ezumphoto but hadn’t found it... With a call to @cecphotos to verify we were in the right direction, turns out I was only off the 1st time by less than a 1/4 mile! —- Jess and I hiked out here late afternoon and stayed for hours shooting sunset (which I have amazing photos from and I’ll edit them some day!) and then into the night hoping that the clouds would clear. They never did fully but I still got a great photo of this alien landscape. This is a cropped pano I did 2 horizontal sets of images, cropped to a vertical 4:5. I also used content aware scale to get it to fit into 4:5 for Instagram. —- Foreground- 14 images stacked ISO 100 F11 - F4 (changed as the blue hour did) 30 seconds —- Sky 20 images stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - @tokinausa 16-28 @ 28 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR & PS —- . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #mstracylee #artofvisuals #agameoftones #illgrammers #travelphoto #naturephoto #naturephotography #ig_clouds #canonusa #milkyway #awesome_earthpix #teamcanon #slikusa #tokinausa

Are you a mountains and…

Are you a mountains and forest fan or deserts and sand fan?? — Last summer during the #GreatMilkyWayChase, I ended up stopping at Maroon Bells to shoot a drab sunset.. I ran into @arwin.l next to the lake whom I had met at the MWC Meetup the year before; she lives in Vegas like me... in spite of it being way too early in the season for MW to line up well here, we still met up at about 4 am to shoot and got these shots at blue hour right before sunrise... it was amazing and beautiful to see, and I’m so happy there was still snow on the mountains in June.. —- Sky 25 images stacked in SLS ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - Foreground 8 images stacked in SLS ISO 10000 F2.8 20 seconds —- @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @ 20mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR PS & SLS —- . . . . . #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #yourshotphotographer #naturephotography #adventurephotography #landscapephotography #keepitwild #wanderout #allaboutadventures #takemoreadventures #wildernessculture #earth_shotz #big_shotz #depthsofearth #optoutside #gramslayers #exploreourearth #exploremore #northwestisbest #shootslik #teamtokina #canonusa #tracyleephotos #tokinausa #milkywaychasers #milkyway #nightphotography #teamcanon #colorado

When taking side detours works out in your favor... we were supposed to head back to vegas but went to the eastern Sierra’s instead.. somewhere along the way I got sick and now have spent 3 days at home trying to get better.. can’t wait to be back out on the road again.. —- I was supposed to head to Florida for the Nasa Space X launch but because of the government shut down, that is postponed.. so my next trip I think is The Wave in a couple weeks... what is your next or first trip of 2019?? —- . . . . . #makemomentshappen #sheadventures #radgirlslife #getoutstayout #liveyouradventure #everytrailconnects #theoutbound #keepitwild #adventurevisuals #stayandwander #choosemountains #nationalparkgeek #she_explores #1020adventures #utahunique #idratherbeinnature #utahhdotcom #herwanderfullife I #outdoorbella #peoplewhohike #mtnchicks #thehikemovement #TODSL #wonderfulwildwomen #whyihike #wildernessbadass #peoplewhooutdoor

When you shoot with friends,…

When you shoot with friends, are you forced to make the executive decision? Or do you just go with the flow? —- A shot from a group trip up through Utah, Idaho, Montana and into Canada back in October... I met up with @missjessbess, @megavai, @ryantoswald & @whiskeybowen for an adventure of epic proportions.. the original plan was to shoot the MW from inside this lava tube, but it was risky as the skies were filled with clouds and we had no idea if they would clear up enough to get a good shot. so we decided the safer route was from up top with a wide angle to include the lava tube... I shot 15 images of the sky just before it completely clouded over. Then I placed a #lumecube (go to lumecube.com and use code TRACYLEE10 for 10% off and free US shipping!) through another lava tube to light the back of the cave... then @ryantoswald had this lamp and wanted to be in the comp so he climbed down into the tube in the dark and this was the resulting image.. I think him standing in the shot really makes the image although the full comp is so much more interesting than the IG 4:5 crop... I really didn’t have faith on this image turning out because I barely got any shots of the sky before it clouded over but I am thrilled about it’s turnout now... —- Sky - 15 images stacked in SLS ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds - Foreground - 6 images stacked in PS ISO 6400 F2.8 8 seconds —- . . . . . #longexposure_shots #tokinausa #slikusa #tracyleephotos #canonusa #milkyway #astrophotography #astrophoto #teamcanon #astro_photography #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #idaho #lavatube #milkyway #nightphotography #night_excl #photopills #amazingphotohunter #fantasticuniverse #wonderfulplaces #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations #thegreatoutdoors #worldbestshot #longexposureoftheday

So earlier in 2018, I…

So earlier in 2018, I took off to the Eastern Sierras to meet up with @ryantoswald & @whiskeybowen... The weather was questionable, and the wind was atrocious and we ended up here lake side.. well I was standing on some rocks and had used my gear bag to weigh down my tripod and then turned my back.. two seconds later the entire set up had blown into the lake... without hesitation, I jumped in after it and saved all my gear from sinking, but everything, all my lume cubes, intervalometers, batteries, and more were wet. At some point during all of this, my case of memory cards flew out of my pocket and disappeared into the abyss. Luckily I had some extra clothes to change into in the car and started stripping down to my skivvies out there on the rocks while the guys got me dry stuff to wear.. I’m fortunate that my camera was not attached and didn’t go swimming, so my night wasn’t ruined. We decided that on the rocks was a poor place to set up and moved to a more stable location to wait out the clouds and hope for clear skies... —- We got them and I was able to shoot 4 images for the foreground here horizontally, and then 8 Images and 14 images stacked for the horizontally oriented images but vertical pano of the sky. I can’t say why I didn’t have a consistent number of images but I’m assuming the wind and the cold and clouds prior to this had a lot to do with it... just thrilled that the image still came out pretty good in spite of the drama of the evening lol!! —- ISO 10000 Foreground 4 shots @ 30 seconds Sky 8 and 10 shots @ 10 seconds F 2.8 @tokinausa 16-28 @ 28 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR, PS & SLS —- . . . . . #nationalparkgeek#findyourpark #yourshotphotographer #naturephotography #adventurephotography #landscapephotography #keepitwild #wanderout #allaboutadventures #takemoreadventures #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #earth_shotz #big_shotz #depthsofearth #optoutside #gramslayers #exploreourearth #exploremore #northwestisbest #shootslik #teamtokina #canonusa #tracyleephotos #tokinausa #milkywaychasers #milkyway #nightphotography #teamcanon #mammoth

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday — This adventure…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday — This adventure starts over a decade ago here in Las Vegas... I made friends w/ @MichaelPernula as he bartended at one of my favorite clubs in Vegas. We would see each other around, and hung out a time or two even; we had since lost contact. Fast forward to recent times. We reconnected & on a whim, took off to Escalante w/ no notice. I planned out a few spots to explore & decided I wanted to shoot this cottonwood composition I had seen from other photographers although try as I might, couldn't find this exact tree with the Milky Way over it. --- Now, this exact tree; that's another story in itself. We arrived to the area of Escalante that we knew it was in, but it was already dusk & getting darker by the minute & I had never been there before! We didn't realize that the rock formation it was on top of extended for at least a couple miles when we started exploring potholes, some over 50ft deep! I was obsessed because I knew this one had the right depth, as well as was the right composition (I love the leading lines in the photos @dustinlefevre has taken here!) to line up with the Milky Way. I pored over the details of Dustin's photos vs Google Maps & found what I thought must be the tree a good distance from where we started. In the dark with potholes everywhere, we finally found it!! --- Michael was gracious enough to go place my lumecube.com (Use TRACYLEE10 for free US Shipping at this link!!) in the pothole facing the wall directly in front of me.. He slid into the hole, but when it was time to climb out, his shoes were covered in sand & got no purchase on the walls. He was stuck!! I kept him in there a few moments longer as I sent up my camera's focus, and tested it's settings then ran over with my 2nd @SlikUSA tripod extended fully and used it to give him a hand up. We actually ended up doing this dance 2 more times to adjust the light and then retrieve it at the end of the night. --- It was an amazing adventure with great memories, and one that should cement our friendship forever! --- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds 10 images stacked in SLS Processed in LR & PS @tokinausa 16-28 @slikusa 634-CF
