I love going on spontaneous milky way adventures! This was a quick 16 hour total trip out and back with @tracyleephotos and @kgoujon. After work, we hopped in the car and drove 3 hours to Cathedral Gorge State Park, set up our hammocks at our campsite, and scoped out a location to shoot the milky way later that night. While Kevin slept peacefully in his hammock, Tracy and I headed back out to our earlier pre-determined location and set up as the moon started to set. There was just a sliver of moonlight and we rushed to capture as many photos we could using the moon's light to capture the foreground, but we were also fighting with the clouds rolling in and covering the milky way. Of course, after the moon set and the foreground was all dark, the clouds completely disappeared, unveiling the whole milky way. I was lucky enough to get this shot with a little bit of moonlight left to illuminate the foreground and a small break in the clouds to reveal the milky way.
