Photo Caption: About those random neon rocks in the desert… #Repost @tracyleephotos
I finally made my way yesterday to the crazy neon rocks in the desert that have slowly been making their way into my social feeds. I had been wanting to shoot the milky way there before I had even seen them in person. When my friend heard that, he said, I’ll go with you and our night time adventure was set! . .
In case you’re wondering, this is Seven Magic Mountains, an art installation in the middle of the desert 15 miles from Vegas starting this month through May of 2018. Get off at Sloan if coming from vegas, or Jean if coming from LA and turn down Las Vegas Blvd a few miles to walk up to the sculptures we have affectionately dubbed, Gay Pride Stonehenge.
We met at 1:45 am so I had a little time to check out potential comps before the moon set at 3am. I knew we would only have an hr to shoot; we were done by 3:30 instead. The 1st comp of the night potentially seemed like the only possible one with the placement of the milky way and trying to get all of the Seven Magic Mountains in the image. But I scoped out a 2nd possible one while the moon made its way down to the horizon and in actuality made the more interesting composition.

Thank you to @lux_pro_flashlights for lighting up the night and my images for me!
