Valley Stars

Newer Older

The single most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Some geek site stated that tonight was the best night of the year to see the milky-way. Well they were wrong because it was a full moon. I drove 3 hours to get to the only "DARK" area near LA. As my luck usually goes, the gate was locked when I got there. I started driving and came to a sign that read "DEAD END." I noticed a small path behind the sign and after further investigation saw that it was a dirt road. I drove up and up and up. This road just kept climbing.. 32 miles later, I pulled over and saw this. I was blown away. No picture could do it justice. That;s fog covering the valley and those lights, that's the traffic on the Ventura Highway. A couple shooting stars and yes that mess in the upper left, that's the Milky-Way. The hard thing was picking a picture to post...I processed 8 images that all look completely different.
This is an HDR image made up of three different exposures 6, 15 and 30 seconds. Some selective noise reduction a little sharpening, that's all.

    This is a beauty. I'd never imagine being able to see the Milky Way above LA. Really cool what was going on light wise under the marine layer, too.

    Stunning shot - that vein of golden light is like fire and steam, genius against the bright blue sky. Superbly well shot.
