Milky Way With Moonlit Foreground In the Anza-Borrego Desert 1
Faint Milky Way (due to the moon rising behind the camera and lighting up the sky) above some agave, ocotillo, and other desert plants in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Mountains in the background.
Shot with a Canon 6D and Mitakon 35mm f/2 lens at 13 sec f/2.8 ISO 4000. This was my first real test of my new homemade thermoelectric camera cooling box. There's a noticeable decrease in noise - despite the night being warm and shooting at ISO 4000. I found some air leaks in the cooling box and have since plugged them. Going to do a second round of testing tonight.
I wish I had moved the composition slightly to the right - so as to not cut off the ocotillo - and down a little bit as well, but it was quite dark out when I first started shooting this scene (this is a frame from a timelapse sequence).
