Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, ISO 3200, 20 seconds, f/2 on a Rokinon 24mm prime lens.
One of my favorite views in the eastern Sierra, located in the Owens River valley, lies Hot Creek Geological Site, where the Mammoth River is heated by magma roughly 3 miles from the surface. This beautiful, geologically active location was a great location to capture some late season Milky Way while listening to crickets, swatting mosquitoes, and snacking on a dinner of wine, cheese, and crackers in the back of my dusty Subaru. There was even an owl swooping past on the hunt for mice in the twilight. August and September are my absolute favorite astrophotography months!
