May the 4th be with you! I wanted to get something that I could tie in to Star Wars Day. After we watched the Laker game at my local pub (around 10:30pm), I made a spur of the moment decision to just head west on Blue Diamond Rd. I basically drove until I found a spot where I thought I could get a decent starry sky photo; before I knew it, I was at Red Rock!
I didn't want to spend too much time out there in the middle of the night, so I quickly shot a few 30-second exposures with absolute guesses on the focus. I was shooting at ISO 1600 at f/2.8, so although my car isn't in focus, I'm lucky I was even close. Not bad for a few minutes of work in the dark.
