Road Trip 2012 Preview

Road trip 2012 is in the works.

Confirmed destinations are: 

  1. Park City, UT
  2. Jackson, WY
  3. Yellowstone National Park, WY
  4. Lake Goodwin, WA

Depending on the weather and my mood, I'm considering:

  1. Joshua Tree National Park, CA (its a good moon to re-attempt some star trails at Skull Rock)
  2. Kelso Dunes (overnight at Buffalo Bills) or #3
  3. Valley of Fire State Park, NV 
  4. Moab, UT (unlikely unless I see a really good deal on a motel between now and this weekend)
  5. Location to be determined in the Uinta Range
  6. Mammoth Hot Springs after my friend leaves Yellowstone
  7. Spokane, WA or camping somewhere that looks cool east of that area
  8. North Cascades National Park, WA 
  9. Mt. Raineer National Park, WA
  10. Klammath Falls, OR
  11. San Francisco, CA or Somewhere off the 395 near Mono Lake

 

My goal is do a set of star trails every night I'm not in Park City, UT or Lake Goodwin, WA. The new moon will be the first or second night of the trip, so I'll have to play around with some various light painting techniques. I prefer to shoot star trails with moonlight because using a strobe or flashlight makes for less than ideal colors IMO. 

Next post will be my camera gear list.

 

Here is my least successful night photography image (I forgot to turn off noise reduction which creates gaps in the star trails and the tripod was moved by high winds.)
