Photo of the Day: Into the Void

Joshua Trees and the Milky Way, Death Valley, California (click for a larger view)

When you have an opportunity to get out to somewhere where it’s dark; and I mean dark, astrophotography is really quite fun. I shot this image with a Nikon D800e camera and 16-35mm f/4 AFS G VRII zoom Nikkor lens. I processed the RAW (NEF) image in Lightroom 4 and then used Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4 to polish it off in post.

Capture notes:

30″ exposure at f/4.0; ISO 1600
