"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. This image is a blend of several images taken at the same location. One long exposure for the foreground, and about 6 images stacked in Sequator for the sky. I then blended the two images together in Photoshop. #milkywayphotographers
