Bishop Creek Milky Way

Since I was not fortunate enough to have any clouds for my sunset photo at North Lake, I figured I’d try to squeeze in a Milky Way shot of Bishop Creek (just West of Aspendell) looking up towards the mountains. I knew it was a bit late in the year to attempt a Milky Way shot, especially since it was nearly a full moon too. Luckily the full moon worked to my benefit, illuminating the entire valley and allowing me to use much lower ISO numbers to get a very clean shot. I can’t explain how much of an upgrade the Nikon D850 is compared to my 5 year old D800. This is a totally clean and useable ISO 800 shot.
