Beautiful shot!

Behind The Lens

Location
Maroon Lake, CO
Time
2 a.m.
Lighting
Natural moon light
Equipment
canon 5d mkii, Rokinon 14 mm
Inspiration
This is a very popular location to shoot in CO, but seldom at night
Editing
The Milky Way was shot with a 30 sec exposure at F2.8, while the lake and landscape were shot at over a minute and them blended in photoshop
In my camera bag
Several lenses that cover a range between 14mm and 200mm, a flash, microfiber, headlamp, intervolometer, flashlight, extra batteries, ND filters, snacks, warm layers, ice spikes, tripod,
Feedback
When capturing the Milky Way as the background for a landscape scene; it's generally a good idea to expose the Milky Way separately from the landscape as they usually require different settings for optimal results, and the shots can be combined in post processing.
