#TBT to last week when this is where I laid my head to rest on the Total Eclipse eve... it was a really tough hike and one im not rushing to do again, but I would definitely do it again!!! I'm chomping at the bit to head out on another amazing adventure and wondering if I can even come close to topping this one!! --- . . . . . #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

So in 2 weeks I…

So in 2 weeks I...

So in 2 weeks I did 3 crazy trips and this was number two to Great Basin National Monument with @SaolyBensonPhoto... We got there in the morning so we did a Lehman Cave tour and then set up camp as well as met up with my friend Gretchen who works at GB... we decided to hike to Teresa and Stella Lake to shoot the Milky Way that night and we got a head start but Gretchen caught up to us on the way in.. we hit Stella Lake right before sunset and decided to hike to Teresa to scope it out... The water level was pretty low so we decided that Stella was our spot and made the hike back.. It was coming up on Blue Hour as we got our equipment set up so I shot a number of foreground shots while I waited for the MW to make her appearance... I love the way a blue hour Milky Way looks and that's what I have here in this photo... The 3rd part of the blend was for the water which I had to color correct to match the sky... --- Foreground is 10 shots stacked for NR in Photoshop (I don't remember the settings right now-will update) - Sky- 10 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 13 seconds - Water- 4 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 2 min ---- @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @slikusa 634-cfl @canonusa 70d Processed in LR, PS & SLS --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory #stellalake #greatbasin #greatbasinnationalpark #teresalake

Where are you shooting the Eclipse??? This is my 3rd back to back trip with only a few hours home in between each. On my way to Sawtooth Lake right now w/ @matthewsavillephoto & Sean Goebel and stopped to take this photo at Alpine Lake... it's been a rough hike for me because I started on a Keto/no carb diet a few weeks ago and I didn't realize how hard it would make backpacking a 55-60lb pack up to 8300 ft.. lol.. no matter, I'm doing it and can't wait to get there... time to get my pack back on and onward and upward!!! Ps: I better lose like 10lbs of fat after this lol!! ---- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory #sawtoothlake #alpinelake #eclipse #eclipse2017

On my 2nd of 3...

On my 2nd of 3 back to back trips, @saolybensonphoto picked me up and we took off to Great Basin National Monument.... Along the way, we stopped to camp for the night in an area that Saoly had discover through research and explored for a composition... In the area we were in, most great comps faced the North Star instead of the galactic center... but then we came across this bowl... we decided that this was where we would shoot for the night.. We headed down to set up camp and make dinner and then around 8:30 pm made our way back here... The skies were amazingly dark and so quiet that the mooing cows got Saoly freaked out.. this was one of a few comps I got that night but loved the rocks in the foreground so much!! I used a lumecube.com/160.html (use this URL and code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) to light up the foreground from the left side bounced off rocks over there. ---- ISO 6400 F2.8 10 seconds 10 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @slikusa 634-CFL @canonusa 70d --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory #lumecube #litbylume #capture4cubes #nevada

I finally got to shoot…

I finally got to shoot...

I finally got to shoot the Milky Way out of an airplane window, and DANG, it wasn't easy! This is ONE SINGLE image. --- It started off with my flight to the east coast. I have a habit of choosing seats on the left side of the plane.. I looked out on my red eye &spotted the Big Dipper. Damn!! I hadn't even thought about the fact I could possibly get this shot on this trip! --- So I decided to try and get a window seat for the flight home on @Delta Airlines from #JFK on Tuesday evening (last night).. I tried to online as I checked in, &it wouldn't allow me to change seats. I tried to when I checked bags in and they wouldn't allow me to either. I got to the gate with a little less than an hour to spare &asked the gate agent. They told me there were no seats available on the plane but it for some reason something came open they would let me know. 5 min later I heard my name over the loudspeaker and rushed back to the gate. Latoya (the SUPER HELPFUL DELTA AGENT) said there was only a seat in the last row which is def not my fave, but all of a sudden she did some hocus pocus &I I had a seat in 29a which is the south side of the plane window. @Delta, she didn't need to do this but i'm so happy she did! --- As we took off, the sun was still setting and I knew we would be chasing the sunset across the sky going west. I would land about an hr after dark, so I was hoping that I would somehow get the shot I wanted. It took me a lot of trial &error to get this shot during blue hour, using my tripod to hold my camera against the window, &my jacket to cover up the window to get rid of any reflections from the cabin. This is the 1st of two images, and although not the cleanest image (I was fighting turbulence for a good amount of the time I was shooting) I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Note: don't pull down the window shade; took me forever to figure out it was throwing a weird reflection! ________ ISO 6400 F2.8 10 seconds @TokinaUSA 11-20 2.8 @SlikUSA 634-CFL @CanonUSA 70d Processed in LR & PS _________ #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #delta

I came out to the east coast for a class I had in PA so I decided to hang for a couples days in NYC.. the minute I got here Sunday night, I headed to Brooklyn Bridge Park with @charles___king to shoot photos and fall asleep sitting on the rocks from being tired from the days antics.. this is a pretty classic shot and I could have gotten closer to the posts but I wanted a better angle of the WTC Memorial.. --- ISO 1600 F22 30 seconds 10 images stacked in PS for NR @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @slikusa 634-cfl @Canonusa 70d --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory #newyork #newyorkcity #brooklynbridgepark #brooklynbridge #dumbo

I haven't been shooting the...

I haven't been shooting the Milky Way as much the last couple sessions but that's about to change.. I've got TWO trips planned next week... but at the end of the last session, I headed out to Echo Bay (thanks for the idea @florendostudioarts!!) with @marceldivino to shoot the last night I could before the moon got too bright... as it was, the light pollution was still pretty strong here, and because it was so late in the evening (1am) by the time the moon went down, the MW had moved right into the lights of Vegas... I used @hoyafilterusa red intensifier to help combat the lights and Photoshop to do the rest of the job! By the way, we saw TONS of shooting stars, I'm sure it was the Perseids starting to make an appearance... --- ISO 6400 F2.8 20 seconds 10 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR @tokinausa 11-20 2.8 @slikusa 634-CFL @CanonUSA 70d @hoyafilterusa red intensifier Processed in LR & PS --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #easternsierras #californialiving #californialove #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory

Took a 16 hour RT...

Took a 16 hour RT to Cathedral Gorge with @EagerExplorer & @KGoujon... For Saoly and I, it was a picture mission, and for Kevin it was all about sleep. We stopped in the town of Caliente for dinner at the Knotty Pine, one of two restaurants in the small town along the way.. Because of our stop, we got to the Cathedral Gorge campground in the dark... We were hoping there were enough trees for us to hang out hammocks from and this was no issue and we quickly got camp set up. With Kevin asleep, Saoly and I took off to take photos of the Milky Way.. --- I wanted to catch some of the light from the sliver of the moon still above the horizon, and then blend it with a sky background.. The clouds weren't quite working in our favor because as soon as we had a composition set up (it took a while to pick one out in the dark and the location we were in would have been better a couple months earlier in the season) then the clouds moved over the moon which was about to set. I went to do some longer foreground exposures in the mean time with the hopes that the clouds would clear and the minute they were no longer in front of the moon, i was shooting new foregrounds. Because the MW had moved too far west, and I wanted a vertical shot, I decided a 2 frame stacked vertical pano was the way to go.. 10 shots pano'd and stacked for the foreground, and 5 pano'd and stacked for the sky. --- Why 5? I couldn't get the cloud/mw placement correct in the 10 shots so had to reduce down to 5. --- Shooting the MW sometimes requires some quick thinking and there was NO WAY I was leaving Cathedral Gorge this time without a MW shot like my previous visit. Thank you Kevin for driving! --- ISO 6400 F2.8 20 seconds all 15 frames stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR @TokinaUSA 11-20 2.8 @SlikUSA 634-CFL @CanonUSA 70d --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #easternsierras #californialiving #californialove #longexposure_shots #nightshooterz #nightshooters #longexposure #longexpohunter #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #nightphotography #mycanonstory

I know everyone thinks I...

I know everyone thinks I only shoot night photos, but I actually shoot all kinds of photos and then they sit on my computer and I never edit or post them... I can't help that I'm captivated and enthralled by the night sky! I'm also fortunate that I'm captivated by sun stars such as this... --- This photo was a matter of right place, right time. I sat down in the shade in the center of Water Canyon as we took a break from the heat.. Leaning back I happened to look up and spot this comp with a sunstar, so I pulled out my camera, snapped a few and thne we continued on our hike.. I hope you like it too! --- ISO 100 F22 1/25 second Tokina USA 11-20 2.8 Canon 70d ---- . . . . . #utahrocks #utahisrad #iloveutah #visitutah #tokinausa #werutah #landscapelover #rsa_nature #rsa_light #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #landscapehunter #beautifuldestinations #amazingearth #earthdeluxe #earthpics #earthpix #fantasticearth #natgeo #natgeotravel #canon #canonusa #natgeohub #amazingearth #itsamazingoutthere #tracylee #tracyleephotos #canonusa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina
