It's amazing how much of the Milky Way is visible next to one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the world. Malibu does have some great spots to see the Milky Way! This is me in front of the camera at one of my favorite viewpoints in Malibu. This is not the Malibu canyon viewpoint on Piuma though. I used a red gel on a flash to rim light myself. Without the rim light, my profile wasn't visible, so it was necessary. I thought red made it pop a little more than the regular color of flash. What do you think? By the way, as I usually do, this is one single exposure. 30 second exposure taken with a 35mm Sigma ART 1.4 lens and a Canon 5D Mark IV aboard a @skywatcherusa StarAdventurer.
