Milky Way in The Dark Skies of Pyramid Lake

Milky Way, Adil Photography

Dark sky, calm wind, ability and willingness to drive, cup of coffee ( have to stay up to 1 am),  a sturdy tripod, DSLR camera, and a super wide lens was the secret recipe of a successful picture of the milky way. The first attempt was out North of Reno, off the Red Rock exit. It was 11pm and we couldn't see the milky way. My friends decided that we should try another night somewhere else.

On the way back to Reno, I asked how long it would take us to get to a very dark area away from the city light and the light pollution; my friend said the closest place would be Pyramid Lake.

A perfect Sky for stargazing. We got there around 12am, set up my gear and started these long exposures, and there we go! A perfect shot for the milky way in the dark sky of Pyramid ( creepy place too!). I was asked if I'm going to do it again, without hesitation,I will totally do it anytime I have the opportunity.

 

Enjoy the shots :)
