McWay Milky WayMost people on their birthday and Friday night would probably head to the bar. 8pm and I was thinking about doing just that, but really wasn't feeling it. So as I usually do, I decided to up the car with enough stuff to stay a week and drive 3 hours down to Big Sur. As I got down there it was pretty foggy, stopped by Brixy Bridge and it was too foggy. I was starting to get doubts about my 3 hour adventure. I decided to still head to McWay Falls, hoping it would be clear. I finally got there, and couldn't be happier. I could see the Milky Way with my naked eye, guess it was time to get shooting. I tried shooting a 360 panorama as well, hopefully that will stitch when I get to that. Definitely a successful birthday photo mission.This is two shots. One for foreground and one for stars.
