#TBT to the #bioluminescence in…

#TBT to the #bioluminescence in Malibu last sept.. I think I might head out there again in May... hope to see some of you out there!! —— Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ What a treat last night was! I headed into LA for work this weekend so I hit up a couple Instagram friends to go shoot in Malibu... It was sometime yesterday afternoon that people were chattering about Bio-luminescence in the water from the night before and I was shown @themalibuartist's most recent image by @thekevingreene... I hoped that it would stick around for one more night and met up with @misledreject, Kevin, @alex.sphoto & @nathanaugustreed before heading down to the beach and then meeting up with @themalibuartist @themalibuartistwife and a few others who's IG names I can't recall and who I also couldn't see in the dark.. it was like a last minute instameet lol... --- I ended up setting up this comp (which was lit by a nearby spotlight down the beach) when I was shooting on my own; everyone was scattered up and down the beach- probably a good 20-30 photographers and most knew each other... --- It wasn't super obvious; You couldn't see the luminescence unless the waves crashed and Carlos said it was nowhere near as bright as the previous night.. --- As I finished up the comp, a guy walked up and said, Tracy? And it was none other than @stevenjmagner whom I have talked about photography so many times over the last 8 months and is an active part of @milkywaychasers.. he took me down to meet @cecphotos who he was there with and I spent the rest of the evening side by side cracking jokes (they tried to convince me that climbing out on this rock in the water was a good selfie idea) and discussing photography; and cheering every time a wave crashed an lit up really big. What a fun and expected evening last night; I love social media and all the friends and connections I have made! (Nice to meet @NeilApodaca, Patrick and a few others too!) --- This is 10 images for the sky stacked in SLS for NR, with about 6 images of the luminescence stacked in separate using the lighten blend mode.. --- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @ 16mm @slikusa 634-cfl @canonusa 6d mk1

The ever elusive. I feel…

The ever elusive. I feel like I can gauge the improvement in my photography skills based on the photos that I have taken here. This is my third time making the trek out to Joshua tree to shoot here at night and I feel it’s by far my best set of photos from this location.. My original plans got a little messed up so to save the evening, I happened to be talking to my buddy @cecphotos and on a whim we decided to meet here... I spent the afternoon in the area killing time, took a sunset hike out to the arch to confirm alignment and explore the area, and then slept in the car until midnight when Chris arrived... we set up some timelapses which we let run a couple hours before we took our other shots like this one.. I used a lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) at 1% to light the inside of the arch. The foreground I took 3 min long exposures for.. we shot until the sun came up; I love this photo! —- Sky- 20 images stacked in SLS ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds Foreground- 10 images stacked ISO 1600 F2.8 3 minutes — Processed in LR & PS @tokinausa 16-28 @ 28mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #longexposure_shots #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeo #itsamazingoutthere #litbylume #capture4cubes #lumecube #darkskyweek #internationaldarkskyweek

Right before I left for…

Right before I left for Peru, I was determined to fill my days and nights with as much stuff, work, and fun as I could. I had to work in Arizona one particular week so while I was out there I made my way to Lost Dutchman State Park to shoot the stars. I’ve always love the photos I’ve seen come out of here and was happy to be able to shoot my own. The light pollution surrounding the area including the lights from the bathrooms was enough to light up this entire mountain. This is a blend of 15 images stacked in starry landscape stacker for noise reduction. —— ISO 6400 F2.8 10 seconds Processed in LR @tokinausa 16-28 @ 24mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —— —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #arizona #arizona_landscapes #longexposure_shots #longexposure #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #natgeo #itsamazingoutthere #arizona_hiking #arizonaphotographer #arizonahighways #arizonahiking #superstitionmountains #chollacactus

I’m very lucky to have some amazing photographer friends in my life! Thank you to @stevenjmagner for this rad photo from last weeks photo adventure outside of Vegas! —— Repost @stevenjmagner ・・・ Thursday I took a much needed trip out of California to reconnect with my thrill seeking side once again. After a busy week of work I decided to join @cecphotos and @mstracylee out in the desert for a night under the stars. Milky Way season has started slowly for me this year and it's been affecting my will to get out and adventure more, but this VERY QUICK trip got me heart racing for more thrilling journeys to capture those twinkling lights from far away lands. ================================= ⌁ Location: Nevada ⌁ Camera: @canonusa 5D Mark IV ⌁ Lens: @sigmaphoto 24mm f/1.4 ART ⌁ Filter: @hoyafilterusa Red Intensifier ⌁ Tripod: @slikusa Pro 700DX Milky Way (Stacked) ⌁ f/2.8 ⌁ 15 seconds ⌁ ISO 3200-8000 Foreground (Focus Stacked) ⌁ f/4.0 ⌁ 239 seconds ⌁ ISO 1600 === . . . . . #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 #traveling_the_blue_planet

After we hit the highest point on the Inca Trail, we descended into this valley filled with clouds and the view was absolutely incredible... I made a small group of us stop at this overlook to grab photos here.. I can’t get over that this was only a week ago; I’ve already been on 3-4 adventures since then!! Lol... I thought that Peru would satisfy this thirst but it made it so much worse.. In the past few days I have scheduled out the rest of April and all of May with trips and journeys... can’t wait to share all the photos!!! —— . . . . . #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 #traveling_the_blue_planet

Just sitting here and waiting for the Milky Way to rise... got to this hidden arch and I was actually surprised at how many footprints there are... 2 years ago when I originally hunter it down, I saw no footprints whatsoever... it was bound to happen, I suppose! Can’t wait to see the stars rise over this beautiful piece of art! —— . . . . . #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 #traveling_the_blue_planet

I really fought through a…

I really fought through a lot to get this photo. From my group being delayed to the point that only three of us made it to these ruins that day, to the clouds in the sky, the light pollution from Aguas Calientes nearby, and the moon rising on the coat tails of the Milky Way that night. - This was exactly one week ago when I was down in Peru hiking the Inca Trail. I knew I wouldn’t be able to shoot the Milky Way at the famous Machu Picchu, but I was determined to shoot it over some ruins while on trail.. - I only had one night when I was there, (Friday night) when the Milky Way would rise 45 minutes before the nearly full moon. Friday night I researched we were camping RIGHT next to the ruins, Winay Wayna which means Forever Young.. Just as everything I read mentioned, these ruins were empty due to everyone being exhausted by the time they hit the last campground before Machu Picchu.. I ran to our campsite to drop off my bag and gear and grabbed two friends and a porter and made it right before 6pm which is when they close for the evening.. - It wouldn’t be till midnight when the galactic core would rise above the mountains behind the ruins.. Since we had to wake up at 3am to break camp, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get to these ruins that night.. I slept for 2 hours, then Rene and I walked 10 minutes to the ruins and quietly snuck in as the gate was still open. - I didn’t have a ton of time because clouds were rolling in so I got this one comp w/ 10 images for the sky and 5 images for the foreground... I never saw the core on the entire trip which is a bummer but to shoot the stars in such a beautiful &historic place was an absolute honor.... you can see the southern cross in the top right again; just wish the sky had come out better! thank you to the staff of @valenciatravelcusco for making this a reality! - Sky 10 Stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds - Foreground 5 stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 45 seconds —— @tokinausa 16-28 @ 16 @slikusa CF522-lite @canonusa 6dmk1 —— #tracylee #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #epicjourneycontest #sliktripods #machupicchu #incatrail #cuscoperu

As if hiking the Inca trail wasn’t enough, we hiked to the top of Wayna (Huayna) Picchu once we got to Machu Picchu (that’s it in the background!)... I about died; the stairs are known as the “Stairs of Death”!! Lol —- Thanks to @NeilHogue over at @HogueKnives & @HogueInc for my new blade (seen here cutting my Apple)... it was very helpful to me on this trip and I appreciate it so much!!!! —— . . . . . #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 #radgirlslife
