A few weeks ago, I headed out on an epic adventure to meet up with @missjessbess @megavai @whiskeybowen & @ryantoswald... We decided to meet on a Friday up in Idaho at Craters of The Moon.. So on the way up, I made a stop at these charcoal ovens that I had previously scouted on another trip.. —- There was only 30 minutes of Milky Way or so this night before the moon began to rise so I knew I had to work fast... I lit the inside with my cellphone light, and the outside with a single LumeCube.com/160.html (Use code TRACYLEE for free shipping) I didn’t move fast enough on this particular comp (due to an unruly bush in the way) to catch the dark horse nebula before heading behind the kiln.. —- This is 20 images STACKED in SLS for NR ISO 10000 F2.8 10 seconds Processed in LR @tokinausa 24-70 @ 28mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6dMK1

#FBF #FlashbackFriday to the 1st…

#FBF #FlashbackFriday to the 1st time I visited here this summer; 2nd time I still need to edit!!! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ On Night 7 of #TheGreatMilkyWayChase, we made our way up to The Crystal Mill... it was quite a trip up a narrow 4x4 road and when we arrived a very intoxicated photographer was up there hanging out to shoot the stars as well... I shot some blue hour foregrounds before settling in for a nap... when my alarm went off a little after 10, startled, I stumbled out of the car to check on my comp and get my star shots going and at some point ended up falling so bad that I still have a bump on my arm 3.5 week’s later... —- This shot is 25 images stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker for NR... the lighting is a combination of LumeCube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) and a Mag light that the drunk guy had to cover the distance across the water... I had shot all kinds of shots to blend foreground and sky, ended up changing my comp, and ended up with this stacked instead... (which makes my life easier in post of course!) —— ISO 10000 F2.8 13 seconds @canonusa 24-70 @ 24 @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 Processed in LR —— . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #longexposure_shots  #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography  #crystalmill #marbleco #marblecolorado #coloradooutdoors #outtherecolorado #coloradorockies #colorado_photographers #colorado_creative #coloradogram #coloradotography

#FBF #FlashBackFriday I love it…

#FBF #FlashBackFriday I love it here and it makes me sad that others didn’t love it enough to keep it pristine.. does anyone know if the trail has been reopened? Vandalism and overcrowding is why I beg people to stop posting locations and gps coordinates; half the fun is finding a place on your own.. —- #Repost @narcissisticnomad ・・・ I finally made it back here last week to shoot the stars... it was a wonderful adventure with new friends although the cairns placed along this route were ALL WRONG!!! Luckily I knew the correct way in!! —— . . . . . #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

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT — A year…

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT — A year ago, give or take a day or two, I met some of the friends who shaped the last year of my life... this was at the Milky Way Chasers meet up at Trona Pinnacles and this photo was from that night! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ So 2 weekends ago when we did the impromptu @MilkyWayChasers meet up at Trona Pinnacles, I said that I wasn't going to shoot any photos other than the group photo so I could hang out and wander around through all the people shooting... Well as I was wandering to get my group shot com set up, I spotted all these photographers on the ridge shooting and I couldn't help but stop to shoot them!!! This is 15 images stacked in SLS for NR... They didn't stay still for 15 frames obviously and I lucked on with a couple frames them being lit by a passing car so I healed them out of the stacked image, and blended in the one frame of them lit up! --- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds 15 frames stacked in SLS for NR Processed in LR & PS Tokina USA 16-28 @ 18mm Slik USA 634-CF Canon 6dmk1

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I feel like…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I feel like I partially got ripped off on my Oregon trip this year with how much the clouds messed up my night shots.. I did get some great shots at both crater lakes though... —- Repost @narcissisticnomad ・・・ We did Crater Lake, and then we stopped at Little Crater Lake. Both are amazing in their own ways... LOVE the clouds and reflection yesterday!! —- 📸 @drdarius7

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I need to…

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday I need to go back soon!! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ Part of my El Paso trip to meet my family I had never met before, also included a couple side adventures. Including this one to White Sands national Monument. --- My brother, Rick took me and my niece to shoot photos on the dunes in her sweet 16 dress. We were rushed for time, so we got out there late, and we were battling cloudy skies. The park closes at sunset so to be able to stay after you have to get a back country camp spot and backpack in a mile through the dunes to your camp spot. Thanks to @Jaxsonpohlmanphotography for the info on this one!! Your photos there inspired me for sure on this trip. --- I have to admit I'm pretty thrilled about how this photo turned out in spite of all the set backs. In her hand she is holding a lumecube which both lit her and the sands up, as well as gave the entire image a mystical feel. ______ This is 4 images stacked in starry landscape stacker for noise reduction as well as a single image for my niece in the foreground. Sky: ISO1250 F2.8 25 seconds Foreground: ISO2000 F2.8 10 seconds (because I didn't want her holding her arm up forever in the shots) I used the wifi app on the Lume cube to have the cube go off at 1/4 power for 1/4 of a second. @tokinausa 11-20 @canonusa 70d @slikusa 634-cfl _________ #milkyway #milkywaychasers #NatGeospace #nightphotography #night_excl #nightphoto #nightimages #globalcapture #supreme_nightshots #tokinausa #slikusa #ig_shotz #ig_shotz_le #igpodium_night #rsa_night #insta_worldz #long_exposure #waycoolshots #longexpo_addiction #amazing_longexpo #nse_dusk #westcoast_exposures #amazingphotohunter #fs_longexpo #nightscaper #tracyleephotos #lumecube

Glacier National Park has been…

Glacier National Park has been on my list of places to go for a while... but the trip I planned a couple weeks ago with @whiskeybowen @ryantoswald @missjessbess & @megavai left us lacking for time as well as clear weather.. we were hoping for an amazing sunset, as well as clear skies for the Milky Way, but instead we got these overcast clouds and then a blizzard!! The color on the trees was amazing but I didn’t even get a chance to shoot photos of it.. thank you to Ryan for scouting ahead to help find this location; I was inspired by @perrikschelatphotography’s amazing image from this location and wanted to find it but was so limited in time.. —- This is a focus blend of two shots; one for foreground and one for sky... it’s also a content aware scaled image because I wanted the foreground and sky to fit into this Instagram 4:5 crop and didn’t care so much about the center of the image... yes the rocks are really colorful; perhaps not as vibrant as I made them here but the colors all exist!! —— ISO 100 F8.0 4seconds —— @tokinausa 24-70mm @ 31mm @canonusa 6DMK1 @slikusa 634-CFL —— . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #glaciernps #glaciernationalpark #glaciernationalparkmontana #montana #kalispellmontana #kalispell #whitefishmontana #coloredrocks #tokina2470 #perrikschelatphotography #usinterior #nationalpark #nationalparks #goparks #6dmkii #canon6dmarkii

On this day last year…

On this day last year I was in Vancouver and went on a fabulous adventure to shoot photos at this lake... well today, I am again in Vancouver but working so not going on epic adventures this time unfortunately... at least I have Lovely memories from last year!! —— Repost @narcissisticnomad ・・・ So the other day I went adventuring to this mountain lake near Vancouver and posted a photo of me on this same slippery tree trunk (almost fell climbing it earlier in evening).. I can't get over how beautiful this lake was as the sun was going down and all the colors on the trees as we drove to it.. The true adventure was to take a night shot here so that's what I did!! Thank you to my friend, Cory for braving the road on this adventure and @cody.roy.visuals for the location suggestion!! If you want to know how I shot this, head to @tracyleephotos and click on the similar photo --- . . . . . #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
