Short lower perspective time-lapse of the Milky Way and Palm Trees at Corn Springs, California
When I return to this location, I definitely want to shoot a longer version of this perspective earlier in the night when the Milky Way core is higher in the sky than it is here.
This time lapse video is made from 386 frames shot with a Canon 6D and Mitakon 35mm f/2 lens at f/2.8 8 sec ISO 3200.
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.
