The Milky Way over Lake Cuyamaca and Stonewall Peak

The Milky Way over Lake Cuyamaca and Stonewall Peak

When I made this photo, I had been really busy shooting the Milky Way. I had just made trips to Little Blair Valley to shoot pictographs and then spent a few nights in Joshua Tree. When I got back, although I was pretty tired from lack of sleep, I jumped on the chance to go up to Lake Cuyamaca with a friend.

Cuyamaca is a popular destination with San Diego photographers -- it's relatively close and dark enough to get good shots of the Milky Way. The lakefront always makes a great foreground subject. However we wanted to try something new and explored the area and found this great overlook.

Each print will be signed using an archival pen in the margin beneath the image. I love printing with fine art papers and this is my preferred medium.
