Photo Caption: It’s still #FBF somewhere 😂and I’m missing the New Mexico Badlands a ton… hope I Getta go there soon! Happy Valentine’s Day All!!
I always admire all of the images I see @Wayne_Pinkston produce out of the Bisti Badlands and he motivated me to go my 1st time; My 2nd trip here definitely outdid the 1st because I had more time to explore it with @kaydenphan @SMPetersonPhotography & @SafatajPhoto.. We had so much fun coming up with tons of comps..
This particular shot was taken on Monday night although I had scoped it out and we got clouded out on Sunday night… This amazing hoodoo formation can be shot from almost every single direction although a South West direction seems to be better if you want other significant hoodoos in the background. I think these are my final shots of the Milky Way from this trip for this season; I wasn’t willing to accept that it was over last month and i’m glad I didn’t!! Thank you to my adventure partners for humoring me!!
This is 15 images stacked for NR in SLS.. I lit the scene with 2 lume cubes (use TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) for the front using CTO filters and a Lighthouse (all available from Lume Cube), and Morteza had his flash firing as a rim light.. I could have used another cube from the back to do the same, but we had the flashes up for other images we did in the evening.
