This was the first successful Milky Way capture of the 2016 season during the new moon in June, the hour before sunrise. I used the Photopills app to determine when the Milky Way would be vertical and in a location that rises from the best angle of Bonsai Rock (facing south), off Lake Tahoe’s north-eastern Nevada shore. It never ceases to amaze me the light and colors the camera picks up that the human eye cannot see, such as the light on the horizon, which is a combination of Central Valley light pollution as well as the sun just below the horizon.
My preferred MW settings have since changed, but this one is at 25 seconds, f/2.8 (using my heavy old Tokina 16-28mm on my Canon 6D), ISO 2000, at 16mm. The faintest amount of light painting to illuminate the rock with a small flashlight.
Thank you for having me in the group- my first post :)
