Still on #thegreatmilkywaychase with very little time to edit so here’s a #TBT! —- Repost @tracyleephotos ・・・ I can easily be convinced of spontaneous detours and side trips and this was one of them on my way back to Vegas from San Diego a few weeks ago.. I had hosted the Milky Way Chasers Meet Up in Malibu, headed to San Diego for a night to shoot, then towards the Eastern Sierras.. I was in contact with @StevenJMagner & @inspired_shot throughout the drive and as I got closer to Bishop, it became apparent that the Napa Wildfires were smoking out the entire area.. I didn't want the trip to go to waste so I quickly suggested the Ancient Bristlecone Forest as an alternative plan.. --- While I wanted for Steven and Tony to catch up to me on the road, I decided to take a dip in the Keough Hot Springs (the free ones) for a few minutes and then met the guys at Copper Top BBQ in Big Pine.. --- I didn't think i was going to have warm enough clothes for up at 11k ft elevation, but I had brought tons of layers so I layered up. We explored the area until dark, and I napped in the car as they shot sunset (there were no clouds in the sky so I couldn't be bothered lol). We stayed warm in the car until middle of Blue hour and then hiked up the hill to the most famous of the Bristlecone trees in the area. --- We set up our comps and then took turns lighting the tree how we wanted to using different lighting. I used a single lumecube.com/160.html (Use code TRACYLEE for free US Shipping) from the left side bounced off another tree next to us. --- 13 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds Processed in LR & PS @TokinaUSA 11-20mm @ 16mm @SlikUSA 634-CF @Canon 6dmk1 --- . . . . . #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #arches #arch #archesnationalpark #longexposure_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophotography #astrophoto #astro_photography_ #astro_photography #longexposure

One of my favorite places…

One of my favorite places to wake up in Utah.. and although there was a comedy of errors to get here including a smashed purple finger and getting a Jeep stuck on a mini cliff, we made it safely and spent the night shooting and sleeping under the stars! Loving my @shimodadesign pack- thanks to peter for sending it out; it’s been so incredible for my photographer 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

Last night I checked a…

Last night I checked a comp I’d been wanting to shoot in Canyonlands off the list; this was right before end of the trail... I knew the trail because I had been there before but instead of going the way I knew, I took a closer trail to where we parked our cars... it led us on a wild goose chase of cairns and trails that cliffed us out on more than one occasion. Do people know that cairns are important for trails and wrong ones can cause Life or Death situations out in the desert? I can’t explain HOW WRONG these trails were and how many wrong dozens of cairns there were.. please do not mark trails incorrectly if you don’t know where you’re at! Love this @shimodadesign pack for all my photography 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

#TheGreatMilkyWayChase Day 8 continued… @krl_photo…

#TheGreatMilkyWayChase Day 8 continued... @krl_photo and I left Marble CO with a 5 hr drive towards Green River UT... We planned on setting up there for a few days at an RV Park (We ended up @ICampgreenriver where the staff has been absolutely amazing!!) and taking day trips out from there.. We got in later than planned and decided to rest and edit images before heading out at 1am to catch a better alignment over Dead Horse Point's river bend. We got there around 2 am and had plenty of time to set up so I ran my tracker for a while and then did this stacked pano. I stacked 20 images for two part of sky, and then 4 longer exposed images for the foreground after the moon rose. I really wasn't sure how well this pano was going to merge, but with a little help, it went together awesome... The smoke on the horizon made for a yellow haze on an otherwise super dark sky.. ---- 40 horizontal sky images (20 &20) stacked in SLS for NR 4 foreground stacked ISO 10000 F2.8 180 seconds foreground 10 seconds sky ---- @CanonUSA 24-70 2.8 @ 24 @SlikUSA 634-CF @CanonUSA 6DMK1 Processed in LR ---- #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 #deadhorsepoint

Went to a little known spot in Utah for sunset.. winds were up to 50mph at some points I think... made for a great photo though!! —- . . . . . #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

#TheGreatMilkyWayChase Tuesday night we headed into Colorado to try and find a place to park the Airstream and then look for a comp for the night... poring over google maps is a favorite pastime of mine so before long I found an arch that I thought would line up both with Sunset and Milky Way... So we made our way over, cutting it close and got lost trying to find out way up onto the plateau where it was at... but!! We made it in time to catch the most amazing sunset of the entire trip followed by an incredible framing of the Milky Way on the opposite side of the arch... such a spontaneous comp that was a huge effort to get to, but totally worth it! This is 20 images stacked in SLS for noise reduction. I lit the arch with 3 lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) —- ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds Processed in LR —- @tokinausa 11-20 @ 16mm @slikusa 634-CF @canonusa 6DMK1 —- Tuesday night we headed into Colorado to try and find a place to park the Airstream and then look for a comp for the night... poring over google maps is a favorite pastime of mine so before long I found an arch that I thought would line up both with Sunset and Milky Way...

#TheGreatMilkyWayChase – This trip is…

#TheGreatMilkyWayChase - This trip is really starting to take a toll with us moving locations to a new city every night. We made it to the Moab area later than planned so we missed shooting sunset and blue hour for our foregrounds. We opted to take a nap, and then head over to Dead Horse Point as it is an easy to access location and could shoot moonrise or blue hour over the canyon in the morning.. We arrived there around 2am where Mike from NJ was already shooting. We set up with plenty of time before Moon and Blue hour and I polar aligned my @SlikUSA​ tracker (the same one we're giving away in the contest). I shockingly had pointed it directly at the north star perfectly so all I had to do was fine tune the tracker and I was set up. I wanted to shoot a longer focal length and longer time than last time; so impressed with how well it turned out!! ---- We noticed a lot of haze in the sky which has translated at the bottom of this image from all the fires in the area we believe! —- ISO 400 F2.8 360 seconds (6 min) @CanonUSA 24-70 2.8 @ 35mm @SlikUSA ECH-630 @SlikUSA 634-CF processed in LR --- #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 #deadhorsepoint #sliktracker #startracker #equatorialmount #tracking #startracking

Don’t you love just making…

Don’t you love just making random stops along road trips? When we have time, we’ve been doing that along this crazy #thegreatmilkywaychase adventure!! Found these waterfalls on the side of the freeway yesterday on our way to Marble... the water was so refreshing and a much needed relief from the long car ride... —— . . . . . #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
