The Milky Way. Kind Of.

July 6, 2019

Last night I went to Tibble Fork up American Fork Canyon to try and take some pictures of the Milky Way. I got there a little before midnight and stayed until 2am. I’ve shot star trails before but tonight I really wanted to get one of those distinctive Milky Way photos where you’ve got the purples and the blues and it looks amazing. Well, I didn’t quite get that but I did get a LOT of stars. It’s incredible how many stars are out there.

Sidenote – Tibble Fork is curiously busy after midnight.
