A couple of nights ago I did a crazy hike with @coastsnstuff
which was inspired by @cartermurphyphoto
Does hiking almost 5 miles in the middle of the night over frozen snow sound like fun? Would you do it just to shoot the Milky Way? By the time we got back to my truck at 5am I was starting to question my sanity and my obsession with capturing the Milky Way in amazing locations. You tell me - was it worth it?
Canon EOS 6D
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II
IOptron Skytracker Pro tracker
ProMaster SP528C Specialist series carbon fiber tripod
Foreground is a 5 image stack, 20s f2.8 ISO 6400
Sky is tracked 3 minutes f4 ISO 1600 shot immediately after the foreground images.
Stacked and blended in Adobe Photoshop CC then processed in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC

So beautiful Bill but I don't think I'd do it! 😱
Want to do it again?! 😄
Stunning Bill, but I don’t know about that hike tho. 💯😊
Wow epic and that’s too gnarly for me lol
You guys are hardcore! Not sure I would have done it through cold and snow. Great job!
Have to hike up elevation as well?
What a sight
At least you get to avoid the crowds that way!
Amazing shot, but I don’t think I could handle the hike.
🙌🏻 Definitely worth it! Love your work 👍🏻
Always worth it! But hope you were prepared for bears 😱
Nice one Bill! That's a fun hike in the snow too.
Yes! Worth it!! Love the photo!
So nice one bill !! Worth hiking for sure .!!
😍👏🏻 Totally worth it. MW photographers definitely have a dangerous thirst for stunning photos. I can’t blame you. I’ve put myself in some risky predicaments for photos 😂
Of course it was worth it!! Glad i could spark some inspiration 😄
Oh it was worth it! But dang, it must've been COLD!
