The entire weekend we were…

Photo Caption: The entire weekend we were out in the Moab area 2 weeks ago when I met up with a bunch of Milky Way Chasers, we were fighting against the clouds every night. I got a bunch of us together for dinner at Moab Brewery including @Keith_Burke_Photography, @xlj_photography, and @the_gingers_adventures, and we needed a location that we could get to easily in case the clouds never cleared. Someone came up with the idea of Fisher Towers because we could drive right up to it. So after dinner was finished, we all drove the 30 miles to the Fisher Towers parking lot and fell asleep in our individual cars.

We set alarms for 1am when the MW was to rise but when I looked out the window, the sky was still completely overcast… Not sure how, but I woke up again without an alarm at 2am and when I looked outside it was almost clear (in spite of my foggy contacts). I fumbled blindly for the door and escaped the car only to set off my car alarm which woke everyone else up.

I was hoping to use my lume cubes to somehow light up the towers but in spite of walking quite a ways closer to them they were making no difference. So I chose to shoot my milky way shots for stacking and then I shot 5 images at 5 minutes each for the foreground.
