Milky Way Panorama Over an Old Miner's Cabin in Corn Springs

I produced this panorama by combining 15 frames shot at 30 sec f/2.8 ISO 3200 with a Canon 6D and Sigma 15mm EX DG. Illuminated the inside of the cabin using a yellow LED.

This cabin belonged to Edward Wodetzki. Wodetzki and family mined this area until the early 1980s. At the time they had numerous gold, silver, and iron ore claims.

Corn Springs is a palm oasis situated in the Chuckwalla Mountains of the Colorado Desert in Riverside County, California, United States, seventeen miles southeast of Desert Center. Native Americans relied on the springs, and they engraved many petroglyphs on the rocks in the area. In the late 19th century, miners in the area also relied on the springs, and they established the Corn Springs Mining District in 1897.

The springs were used for thousands of years by nomadic Native Americans. The Chemehuevi, Desert Cahuilla and Yuma bands frequented the spring and carved elaborate petroglyphs in the nearby rocks. Some of the oldest rock art is over 10,000 years old. At times, there was enough surface water for gardening by the springs. The Indians also utilized the fruit of the palms.

Early white visitors found feral corn plants in the vicinity, giving the spring its present name.
