- Vortex Over Mono Lake - www.instagram.com/milky_way_mike fb.com/mikeversprill While running around South Tufa, Mono Lake capturing the milky way I let my second body photograph Polaris. I zoomed and stacked the photos to create a spiral/vortex effect and blended it back with the foreground. Mono Lake is such a unique place, especially under the night sky.

STACKED / TRACKED / BLEND -Midnight Hike- While photographing the Milky Way Galaxy drifting behind Mt Rainier I was really surprised to see so many lights on the mountainside. After taking some shots with my 50mm lens I was able to zoom in and count the number of headlamps in each group which was really amazing! I a series of photos from the sunrise visitor center and made a time lapse of the hikers climbing up Rainier which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/aQXlY18NgYE Tech: Foreground is 15 photos stacked - Nikon D800 50mm ISO 4000 F2.5 Shutter 6 Seconds The milky way I tracked (iOptron Tracker) about an hour earlier before it reached the peak and had less obstructions at 50mm F2.8 ISO 3200 Shutter 30 seconds (6 shot pano). I blended the tracked sky back with the foreground, however the core the milky way is higher than it normally would have been. #mountrainier #mtrainier #sunrisevisitorcenter #gothere #milkyway #milkywaymike #milkywaygalaxy #huffpostgram #discoverearth #splendid_xposure #picofthenight #theworld_thru_youreyes #nikontop #universetoday #newmilkyway #night_shots #night_shots_ #washington #washingtostate #hubs_united
