Photo Caption: #flashbackFriday to earlier this summer when I went to the Patriarch Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Forest. I love this tree!
I just completed a 5 day trip in the Eastern Sierras and boy, did I have a lot of fun and shoot a TON!! I met up with so many friends from Milky Way chasers and met some new friends in the dark. I am not going to be posting/editing in order at all.. Just kind of doing it as the feeling takes me.. This tree we started calling the Zebra tree early on in the evening before it was dark… The colors of it’s trunk captivated me as we wandered through the Ancient Bristlecone forest on Monday night. . . .
I had met up with @Mr_Awesome717_photography, @Prevailz & @MatthewSavillePhoto as well as Kayla and Rory who were along for the adventure, and we drove into the Patriarch Grove in the White Mountains. I knew this tree was an early evening composition but it was going to be a gamble to see how perfectly the Milky Way core would fit into the break in the trees. . . .
The gamble paid off and this ended up being my favorite composition of the night!! This is a single image with the moon still up on the right side of the frame. We used a @lux_pro_flashlights to light up the foreground of the tree. This 5 day trip taught me to embrace the moonlight in my images and therefore extended the amount of days I can shoot each and every month!
