"Yucca Bloom under Milky Way" by Lisa Phillips. Over the Memorial Day weekend, I finally got out to shoot the Milky Way for the first time in 2020. The high winds early in the evening put a damper on shooting for awhile. At about 2 am they settled down enough to get a couple hours of shooting in.

I then blended the two images together in Photoshop. #milkywayphotographers
