Description

Years ago I remember seeing photos of McWay Falls in Big Sur, CA and knew I had to visit. I knew I had to go back and see it with the Milky Way rising aboze. Unfortunately, when the Milky Way rises in the summer, so does the fog. Fog so thick you can barely see your feet. One weekend, an awful heat wave kept the fog from creeping in and with the summer time position of the Milky Way I knew I had my chance! I arrived at sunset and setup my composition and focus while I still had some light out. Then I waited. At 10pm another photographer arrived and he came with some mighty powerful LED lights. It wasn't until after 1pm that the Milky Way finally moved its way far enough into the frame for my liking. Joel setup the LED lights far to our right to avoid the backscatter of the lights reflecting off the moisture in the air and also gave it a natural look -- all in one shot
