Joshua Tree Summer

The Black & Whites

I never thought I would do much time in the desert in Summer. But I’ve found it at the right time to be quite bearable.

So I packed up and headed up to shoot the Milky Way at Joshua Tree National Park.

But before hand since I go there early I took some time to wander around the Queens Valley and Wall Street Areas

Here they are in living…Monochrome

Drone Drawing – Skyart

Went out to the Anza- Borrego Desert with fellow photographers Laurie Rubin and Dan Hughes for some shooting and flying fun

Laurie brought along her DJI Phantom Vision +2 Quadcopter Drone and got some great video from Font’s point of the Badlands below

Later when it got dark we headed over to Clark’s Lake Dry Lakebed for what we thought would be some star-trails shooting but instead we decided to just have some fun and Laurie flew her Drone while Dan and I shot her doing some Drone Drawings or as we will call it Skyart

Enjoy

Of Milky Ways and Galactic Dreams

Can’t believe I forgot to post these

On a Dark Skies Night and new Moon I headed out to The Anza – Borrego Desert to shoot the Milky Way

Had a shoot planned but then need to change it because Rocks I thought faced one direction actually faced another ( I neede them to be in a South – South East direction the spot of the Brightest nebula. But that’s ok, as I always say, I let the scene tell me what to shoot.

I ended up shooting a Woolly Mammoth, I wanted to  shoot a T-Rex that is out in the desert. But at 12 O-clock in pitch darkness, I couldn’t find it.

I still get creeped out shooting in the dark alone in the middle of the desert…I always hated the dark as a kid and even though I love it now…it’s still gets kinda creepy.

I think I’m gonna invite some others along next dark sky night when I try to shoot the Milky Way again
