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.
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.
