It's time to stop procrastinating and start posting photos from the Moderately Epic Tour of California (downgraded from Massively Epic because we returned to Vegas a day early).
Day 1 saw us drive up US-95 towards Tonopah. We cut across to Mono Lake and continued North towards Tahoe. We had trouble finding a good camp site before sunset. Finally, at around 9pm, we lucked upon a spot right next to the west fork of the Carson River.
By this point, I hadn't taken a single photo all day. I decided to bust out a long exposure Polaris star trail attempt. This one was actually my first try. It could definitely benefit from a full frame body, but I'm pretty happy with it. It was shot at ISO1600 at f/5.6 for around 20 minutes.
