glacier point-yosemite national park

believe it or not BOTH of these photos were taken at night.

the moon in the first image looks as bright as the sun...but if you look closely you can see stars in the dark blue sky.

...and that second photo...lets just say I have a major star crush. I could lay and stare forever.

we spent labor day weekend in yosemite. it was very pretty indeed. after camping, I flew straightway to utah for work. I make my way back home today...excited this week to work on a wedding, some family documentaries, pretty jewel photos..and really excited to lay on the hammock and continue crushing on the the sky from my own backyard.

happy thursday.

wow these are long did your apeture stay open to capture these?

i love the stars as well, when i was younger I would go layout on our trampeline until the late hours just staring into their shimmering light.

this image makes me want to get back to that place of wonder.

thanks! I think it was only 3sec for the moon shoot and about 30sec for the stars. they're not perfect but they were kind of spur of the moment AND without tripod. just using the timer and sitting on the ground.

thanks for loving stars with me.
