Joshua Tree Astrophotography 8-7-21

Found a weekend after the new moon to go out and shoot the Milky Way. Figured this would be my last trip out for the year until I had to wait until next year to do it again. It was a clear night and the Milky Way was beautiful in the sky. I was surprised to see the number of people that were out there also doing photography. I am pretty happy with how the shots came out, the only issue being Palm Springs in the distance and that everything was sitting on top of that glow. I might try to do a light filter next year.

Additional Astrophotography in Joshua Tree

Went back over the 4th of July weekend to take some shots. Unfortunately the cloud cover caused the shots to not be perfect. However I think there are some good ones that I was fairly happy with it. I did some additional edits to them to make them look a little better and take out some of the highlights and fix some of the issues that I did see in them. All shot with the my Sony A7Riv and the 16-35 F4 lens.
