Thankfully the weather is starting to cool off unlike this 110 degree day in Joshua Tree in July with @missjessbess... we had a mission that day and we have not accomplished it as of yet... time to spend October and November on the discovery...in the mean time, I’m heading towards the snow this week I think... —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

Took off to Cali to get my passport renewed and expedited... that thing ran out of pages on the 28 page book 4 Years early, so I requested the 52 page book and although it was back in my hand in less than 2 days, it was only the 28!!! Oh well, 2 canada trips and then I have to send it back to them to fix! While I was out there I made sure to check out the ocean for a little bit... next adventure coming soon!! —- . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

#FBF #FlashbackFriday I need to…

#FBF #FlashbackFriday I need to get back to @mystichotsprings! — Repost @narcissisticnomad ・・・ I finally made it out to @MysticHotSprings for the first time! I’ve been wanting to come here forever and the timing was never right. Well today, as I drove back to Vegas from Salt Lake I decided the timing was perfect and the weather was perfect. I spent close to two hours soaking in the tub today before getting back on the road. I will be back VERY soon... —— 📸 @apple #iWatch & #iPhone8 . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I need to…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I need to get some more time in on my tracker; perhaps with ORION!! - Repost @tracyleephotos ・ Taken w/ my new Slik USA ECH-630 star tracker... --- I caught a flight back to LA from Portland on Sunday, grabbed my girl @XO_Anhie and took off to Mammoth Lakes, CA. Original plan was to backpack into the mountains to hit some glacial lakes with @StevenJMagner and his buddy @LAHikes, but since I was fighting off a cold from the night in Crater Lake, and the weather was looking really bad (Rain snow & 28 degree weather), Anh and I decided to detour to Lone Pine where it would be clear &much warmer instead. --- We hit 3 hot springs in Mammoth before we headed down, &then got side tracked by an arch I hadn't seen before in AH.. It was getting dark so we found a spot to camp & settled in for a nap. We didn't sleep very much because the wind decided to kick up like a banshee; we were worried to leave the tent when we left to shoot so we tied rocks to it &prayed for the best. -- We got to Mobius arch for my 1st night shoot there ever (after hitting the 1st arch for a bit) around 1 am & JUST missed the light of the moon on the foreground. Lucky for us, no one was there! I had some time before the sky darkened so I set up the tracker Slik had sent me to test out. I used the large peep hole to find Polaris, & then fine tuned using a laser ( thank you @drdarius7) through the small peep hole. It was actually pretty quick but this was my 3rd time trying. Foreground I lit using 2 Lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) -- My fave part of the MW is so prominent now- #rhoophiuchi — SKY- single image ISO 800 F 2.8 180 seconds - Foreground 10 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 1600 F2.8 30 seconds --- @TokinaUSA 16-28 @ 24 @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 Processed in LR & PS —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #slikusa #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #lumecube #capture4cubes #litbylume #mobiusarch #alabamahills #lonepine

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday —- Repost @tracyleephotos…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ #TheGreatMilkyWayChase Day 8 continued... we left Marble CO with a 5 hr drive towards Green River UT... We planned on setting up there for a few days at an RV Park (We ended up @ICampgreenriver where the staff has been absolutely amazing!!) and taking day trips out from there.. We got in later than planned and decided to rest and edit images before heading out at 1am to catch a better alignment over Dead Horse Point's river bend. We got there around 2 am and had plenty of time to set up so I ran my tracker for a while and then did this stacked pano. I stacked 20 images for two part of sky, and then 4 longer exposed images for the foreground after the moon rose. I really wasn't sure how well this pano was going to merge, but with a little help, it went together awesome... The smoke on the horizon made for a yellow haze on an otherwise super dark sky.. ---- 40 horizontal sky images (20 &20) stacked in SLS for NR 4 foreground stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 180 seconds foreground 10 seconds sky ---- @CanonUSA 24-70 2.8 @ 24 @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 Processed in LR ---- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #slikusa #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #deadhorsepoint

Another photo from the Sunset I spent in Salt Lake City with @missjessbess a little while back... I can’t get over how epic of an evening it was and hope to go back soon again!! —— 📸 @missjessbess —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #sheisnotlost

I stopped by here last…

I stopped by here last weekend in the morning... I love coming here whether I shoot the Milky Way or not... —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・ Last weekend I hosted an impromptu end of season @MilkyWayChasers meet up at Trona Pinnacles with an awesome turnout; Thank you again everyone!! Since we were driving all the way to California for it, @SaolyBensonPhoto and I took off a day early so that we could hit some spots in the Eastern Sierras to shoot Milky Way and Fall color before heading down to meet with the group. I had been wanting to shoot at this location since last year after @Prevailz had mentioned it to me. --- As we were driving up the 395, the skies were super cloudy but my trusty weather website, noaa.gov promised that the skies would clear up in time. We didn't feel a sense of urgency to make it here by sunset because it was so overcast we thought for sure it was going to be a crappy sunset.. Boy, were we wrong!!! Not only was it one of the best sunsets ever, the skies cleared up JUST in time for me to get this shot of the alignment. --- What is crazy is that I thought i had messed up this shot and was going to have to composite a later Milky Way in, or just deal with a shot that didn't have the MW in alignment... Going back through my images, I had done a vertical pano at the exact perfect time. The sky, the upper part of the pano, was taken 15 minutes after the foreground was taken. --- I don't usually shoot night sky with my @canonusa 24-70 but I wanted a bigger MW so my foreground was taken at 35mm. I was kicking myself as I realized I would get trailing in my MW at the settings I wanted, so for the sky I switched to 27mm. I would have rather kept them the same focal length but I had already messed up and couldn't go back to get the incredible foreground color this one has. --- Sky 8 Images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds @CanonUsa 24-70 @ 27mm @SlikUsa 634-CF @CanonUsa 6dmk1 Processed in LR & PS - Foreground 15 Images stacked in PS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 3.2 seconds @CanonUsa 24-70 @ 35mm Processed in LR & PS --- #slikusa #canonusa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory
