Our trip was supposed to be about Milky Way last week and it ended up being inadvertently about storm chasing. @missjessbess and I met up with @milkywaymodel and @_ChristianLoya and took the very sandy journey out to White Pocket for the night. We were hoping that it had rained enough for their to be pools of water for reflections but we weren’t so lucky..

I had spotted this comp on my last trip here in November and we got equally as skunked last week as we did back then. We had 50mph gusts rocking us and our tripods as we tried to shoot our Blue Hour foregrounds.. The skies were clear but it was a race between the clouds and the Milky Way and the clouds took the checkered flag as the light was dimming out of the sky..

I can’t believe that this image still came out as good as it did considering how bad the wind was and how hard I was holding my tripod down and squeezing my eyes shut! The lightning wasn’t striking out of the clouds so best I got was them glowing brightly… I used @photopills before it was dark to verify what time we would need to shoot this for MW… This is a blend of multiple exposures, stacked in Starry Landscape Stacker
