  1. Having been to Joshua Tree many times, I was amazed to see this shot of the Milky Way by Dana McMullen. I’ve since tried to recreate this with a Sony A7s, but have not been successful. I think there is more than just a little luck going on here.

  2. Hey @nelsdrums:disqus,

    First of all, thanks so much for listening. I agree. Dana has some Milky Way shots that are amazing, and I say that keeping in mind there are many great Milky Way shots, but he seriously is one of my faves. He has one shot over Half Dome that is so good it makes me want to put my camera away.

    Again, Thanks!
