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…

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

I always thought I had the travel bug having been to like 26 countries already but this one really lit a fire under me this time! There’s a hunger that needs feeding!!

So on my way home from Peru I had an over night layover in Mexico City... So I rented a pod in the airport to sleep in...

Hiking the Inca Trail with…

Hiking the Inca Trail with all its history and culture was amazing... sitting on the Inca Trail with new friends under the stars was breathtaking!! We took these on Thursday night of our trek which was Day 2 for us... 7 others joined me, 3 from our group and 4 of the staff to lay down on the path and look up at the stars... While the skies were mostly clear, massive lightning storms could be seen by their flashes of light behind mountains in two different directions.. Thank you to Alex and Rene of @ValenciaTravelCusco for making my photography a priority like they did... shooting the night sky on the trek was VERY important to me so therefore they made it important to them... it only seems right as the Incan people used the sun and the stars in the way they built their buildings and temples... thank you also @ac8c @alecarreras and our new friend, Michael for joining me that night! —- if you want information on how I shot this image, please head to @tracyleephotos and read about it! —— #tracylee #tracyguns #tracyleephoto #tracyleephotos #mstracylee #tracyleephotography #limaperu #livealifeworthliving #livelifelove #livelifetothefullest #livelife #adventureismydrug #adventureislife #adventuretime #adventurelife #adventureofalifetime #cuscoperu #machupicchu #girlstrip #valenciatravel #valenciatravelcusco #winaywayna

Shooting the stars on the…

Shooting the stars on the Inca Trail was of high priority to me, but unfortunately the almost full moon was in the rising Milky Way galactic center every night on trail except my last night; even then it was chasing her by 30 minutes.. in spite of that, I dragged friends and staff out every single night to shoot and PRAYED that the clouds would stay back.. As far as I’d seen and been told, the clouds are a prominent feature of the Andes Mountains, especially in areas dubbed “The Cloud Forest”... —- This shot was taken directly on the Inca Trail outside of our camp after the hardest day of hiking up to 14k ft; I can’t believe that 8 of us were up for this side adventure after the difficulty of the day.. —— The Inca Trail lined up with where the Milky Way would be rising as well as the waterfall, so I set up here and started focusing while everyone else laid on their backs on the stones of the world famous pathway.. We stared at the most stars I had ever seen; The lack of light pollution made it possible to see an INSANE amount of stars! Periodically we saw flashes of light from 2 different directions from two different storms; it stayed cloudless for over an hour where we were!! —- I was really excited to see a different night sky than I am used to as well... while this shot doesn’t have the Galactic Center in it, the appearance of the southern cross above the horizon and this end of the MW was an absolute treat! What an epic adventure!!! —— This is 10 images stacked for the sky, and 5 long exposure images for the foreground.. we used a Lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) to light up the tree and people for the portraits I also shot of my friends... ——- Foreground 5 images stacked in PS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 4 minutes - Sky and trees 10 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds —— Processed in LR & PS @tokinausa 16-28 at 16mm @slikusa CF-522 lite @canonusa 6DMK1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #amazingearth #natgeo #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #machupicchu #incatrail #cuscoperu #epicjourneycontest
