A few weeks ago, I went camping with my parents out in Joshua Tree. We hadn't been in a few months, and I desperately needed to take a quick break from filling out school applications and the like. Knowing that we'd be out there overnight, I took my camera and packed up my tripod for the trip.
Looking back on these photos now, I have a lot to learn about night time photography! Some of them came out unfocused and the stars look blurry because I held the shutter down too long to get crisp stars, but not long enough to get the cool streaked effect.
The boulders also came up a little red because we had a fire going, though it was mostly completely dark when I took these.
This one was taken just as the moon was starting to rise above the rocks we had camped out against!
The next morning, my dad went for a bike ride with his friends while my mom and I cleaned up camp. Once they returned, they did a quick round of rock climbing that they had set up the day before.
It was a fun little trip out, and I was happy to be back in one of my favorite places.
