I took off to Utah…

I took off to Utah for the Cinco De Mayo weekend; not to party but to hang with my girl @the.curly.nomad who is living the RV life.. We had oh-so-many adventures over a short few days, but the last one we had was out to Bonneville Salt Flats to shoot the Milky Way.. We went out early because I had never been and I wanted to see it before sunset. Of course I ended up shooting sunset before we took off to grab dinner in nearby Wendover; We had a cloudy sunset and crossed our fingers for a clear night... I went high aperture because i'm a huge fan of sun stars and I get great ones on my @TokinaUSA lenses! This was before they had sent me a new 16-28 so I was using my 11-20. ---- ISO 100 F22 1/10 second @TokinaUSA 11-20 @ 16mm @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 Processed in LR —- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #sunset #sunset_pics #sunsets #bonnevillesaltflats #sunset_stream #sunset_ig #sunset_vision #sunset_hunter #sunsetlover #sunsetlovers #sunsetlove #sunset_lovers #sunset_lovee

Taken w/ my new Slik…

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) --- Later, we made new friends when @d___kim & Sean showed up after 2am to shoot w/ us! --- 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 #nightshooterz #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure #lumecube #capture4cubes #litbylume #mobiusarch #alabamahills #lonepine #startracker

I’m so lucky to be…

I’m so lucky to be able to work on the road... this was my office on Wednesday morning after spending the night in Alabama Hills.. after a few days of cloudy overcast weather (and lots of hot spring hopping) this was the 1st morning it cleared! Who’s spent time in the Eastern Sierras.. —- Thank you @xo_anhie for the photo and the adventures! I’m now home for a week and then taking off on another series of adventures... —- . . . . . #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

This week last year… #TBT…

This week last year... #TBT —- Repost @narcissisticnomad ・・・ A fun two days on Lake Powell exploring new canyons I've never been in. The trip didn't quite go according to plan but we still had a blast! I got some sun time in this super fun slot, although I made sure to put SPF 70 on my arms and chest I hopes that my legs would catch up I color.. --- Thank you @mnelso24 for being an awesome adventure buddy; can't wait for more in the next few weeks.. thanks for this awesome pic too! --- . . . . . #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

#TBT I need to go…

#TBT I need to go back! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I headed off on a 6 day adventure with @KaydenPhan in tow on Saturday evening... She spontaneously joined and we were off within a couple hours.. Our destination?? New Mexico to meet up with @smpetersonphotography & @safatajphoto .. We've just spent the last 3 days with next to no phone service exploring all kinds of hoodoo areas, both known and ones we discovered on google maps.. It was such an awesome time and the adventures are far from over! We're heading to Page now to meet up with a few more photographers and continue the fun.. Season's not over till the fat lady sings I always say, and we're milking her for everything she's got! --- This was taken yesterday evening; the foreground shot around 6pm and the sky about 20 minutes later... I had wanted to get a blue hour milky way and do a stacked image only, but because the sun went down right where the Milky Way rose I wasn't able to get anything that looked great.. So I stacked and blended 15 images for the foreground and 15 for the sky in starry landscape stacker. I used 2 Lume Cubes (Lumecube.com/160.html and use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) to light the area with Lighthouse and CTO filters on them. The hoodoos themselves were different colors so that's why they are different colors in the image. I bounced the light off a set of hoodoos off to the left. --- All images both foreground and sky: ISO 6400 F 2.8 10 seconds Tokina USA 16-28 @ 19mm Slik USA 635-CF Canon 6dmk1 Processed in LR & PS --- #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #mycanonstory #newmexico #bistibadands #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #lumecube #capture4cubes #litbylume

Still trying to share so…

Still trying to share so many photos of so many adventures the last few weeks, and I keep going on more... I’m FINALLY on my way back home for a few days before leaving on a trip that has no end date as of yet.. hoping to try to meet up with the @thisadventurelifeblog crew, but not sure it’s going to happen.. —- This is a selfie from last weeks Oregon trip... the moss and waterfalls were amazing! And I managed to get some star photos in; in spite of the cloudy weather and rain... —- I’m rocking my brand new camera bag/backpacking pack by @shimodadesign... after rocking it for the last 2 week’s on multiple adventures, I have to admit, I’m in love!! And of course I’m repping @virusintl Compression gear! —— . . . . . #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 had an amazing trip…

I had an amazing trip back and forth all over Oregon last week with @smpetersonphotography @amymichelle4 @safatajphoto @drdarius7 and many more I met along the way! —- On Thursday I took off with @drdarius7 in search of MW Comps.. on Friday we hit waterfalls, hot springs, and then the incredible and amazing Crater Lake... we got there in time for exploring & sunset... we started at Disco Point and hiked along the rim looking for a spot that was far enough NW to be able to get this shot without having to hike all the way to the Watchman. We found this point about a mile and a half in and decided that it was our comp! —- We napped in the car for a bit until about 1030 and then hiked to our spot.. while we were setting up our cameras and getting focus, we couldn’t believe it but we heard voices approaching. They must have seen our lights because they turned away although we heard them nearby throughout the night. Turns out through social media, @pnw.zack figured out it was us out there that night, lol... —- I was having issues with focusing my camera and after opening it up and checking the sensor, I determined there was a residue on the mirror; I cleaned it off as best as I could, got my camera focused and then started shooting. @drdarius7 had already been shooting a while by this time.. I’m anal about my panos with tons of overlap so this 168 image stacked shot took a couple hours to shoot in the freezing cold.. this is a 2 row vertical pano; top row has 14 frames of 10 stacked images each and bottom row has 14 frames of 2 three minute exposures each.. I stacked all images in Starry Landscape Stacker and then amazingly enough, Lightroom EASILY put together the entire pano in about 2 minutes. I thought I I was going to have to blend top and bottom in PS.. - This image is cropped by Instagram and the entire image is actually a lot wider.. and looks way better lol... —— Sky 10 stacked images per frame ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds — Foreground 2 stacked images per frame ISO 2000 F2.8 180 seconds —- @tokinausa 16-28 @ 24 @slikusa 634-cf @canonusa 6DMK1 - #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina
