Milky Way over Natural Bridges State Beach, CA

Posted by Mike Hall (California, United States) on 25 July 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Summer weather around the Central California Coast usually mean fog or clear skys.

On this particular shoot, I wanted clear skys to be able to capture the Milky Way over Natural Bridges (back in the day, there were three "bridges"). The fog in the Monterey Bay held off the city lights from across the bay, but the light of the First Quarter moon cast a lot of light into the night sky so the stars weren't as dramatic as I wanted. Regardless, it was a enjoyable evening shoot.

Thanks for visiting my photoblog. Though I may not be able to respond to every comment, I do read them all and I appreciate your interest.
