Funny it was so dark that night. We were looking for the dragon sculpture and knew we were close but couldn't find it. Well when we got home I noticed on the right hand side that the sensor does pick up more than our eyes the dragon silhouette was only yards away! I was laughing when I saw that! Taken at 4am.

Really lucky shot I'm just starting get at least decent photo good job:-)

Behind The Lens

Location
Borrego Springs, California
Time
It was 4:30am
Lighting
I light painted the street.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D750 paired with a Nikon 14-24mm f2.8. Me photo tripod and a corded shutter release.
Inspiration
Well that is a funny story because my son and I were looking for the serpent sculpture and we knew we were close but it was dark and we couldn't find it. I decided to take a photo of the road leading to the milky way. When we got home I noticed on the right hand side the silhouette of the serpent! We were so close but that goes to show how dark it really gets out there.
Editing
Yes in Lightroom. I Normally brush the sky and add some saturation and lower the the exposure about a .25 stop. I'll add just a bit of clarity to the sky and then repeat the process just on the milky way.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750, Nikon 14-24mm f2.8, Nikon 50mm f1.4, Sigma 120-400mm f5.6, various filters, two remote releases, extra batteries and memory card, cleaning kit, two flash lights, Mephoto tripod, snacks and all packed in a Lowpro backpack.
Feedback
Yes use the 400 rule to not get star trails. Focal length divided by 400 gives you exposure time in seconds to avoid noticeable star trails. (400/14mm = 28 seconds) The earth is always moving so star trailing is always happening but when printing large the 400 rule should make pinpoint looking stars. Most important advice, HAVE FUN!
