Milky Way Over Promontory

My family went out to the west desert to watch the Perseid meteor shower. It’s always great to escape light pollution and enjoy the outdoors.

Of course, I had to shoot the Milky Way since it was above the horizon and looking spectacular so I threw the X-Pro1 on the tripod and shot some frames. It took a bit to get the framing of the photo correct, but after a few attempts I got it right.


This is looking south toward Promontory near the Great Salt Lake. The light on the horizon comes from Brigham City.
