Into Darkness

A failed attempt but worthwhile experience...

Unfortunately I was not sufficiently equipped for taking night sky photography. I use the Sony NEX 5t body. It has an APS-C sensor and the only lens I have for it is a 55-210mm. Regardless I thought I would see what I could come up with. My friend and I drove to one of my favorite simple trails to walk in snow canyon, just north of the lava tubes on the way to pine valley. We got there while the sun was still setting - giving me time to adjust my zoom in order to reduce focus issues when night came. Unfortunately, my shots were still out of focus. The only way I could capture the stars was to increase my ISO - which resulted in pretty noisy photos. Eventually we decided to experiment with light trails - a little cliche but they still turned out kind of cool...
