Great Wide Open
Literally in the middle of nowhere. Driving to Trona Pinnacles requires some serious offroading with just the wide open desert all around!
Camping at Trona
Camping out in the middle of nowhere with no campsite or facilities is totally liberating. My buddy Evan had this cool camper while I huddled in my tent under the stars
A Trona Moonrise
There was really no clouds in the sky. So I was really surprised to get this much color in the sky. And yes the light is completely from the full moon rising.
Starry Starry Night
A still from the star trails I did at Trona Pinnacles. I guess you may have to zoom in to see all the stars
Stars and Pinnacles
It is definitely possible to get star trails on a full moon night. I started off with a clear blue sky, but within half hour there were clouds streaking across the sky.
Sunrise at Trona
Even though we had a gorgeous moonlit night, the sunrise and sunset were a bit boring with no clouds in the sky. The shadows cast by the pinnacles made for a great photo though
