East of Fresno between Thomas A Edison Lake and Florence Lake. The only way in is by OHV trail.
Bear Diversion Dam is in the High Sierra and is a gateway to the John Muir Trail. On this night very few clouds were in the sky and the views of the Milky Way were stunning. That's Jupiter rising near the mountain top. Nikon D810, 14-24mm lens wide open, Ice Light Pollution Filter, iOptron SkyTracker Pro. 90 second exposures for the Milky Way. No tracker for the foreground shots but everything else remains the same. This is a composite of four images - three Milky Way and one foreground. I used Lightroom and Photoshop.
