I spent three nights camping in the backcountry of Big Bend National Park last week. The weather was nice and the nights were mostly clear and definitely dark. It was a great trip.

I had a very specific photographic mission this trip. Well, two missions, acutally. One was the night skies, and the other? just stay tuned…
I have just begun the post-processing process, and I’m chewing my way through 16 GB worth of files. I will post more photos from the trip in the coming weeks. I’ll also write up a field report describing my techniques and experiences in shooting star scenes like the one above.
