I was up at a lake 10,000 feet above sea level this weekend in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and finally got the chance to shoot the Milky Way. It was a lot harder than I thought, as I couldn't get the foreground exposed properlly. When I tried a 10 min exposure, the random noise really messed up the IQ of the shot. I ended up shooting some shots at mid ISO and just using the silhouetted of the foreground. Here's one that kind of worked. This is just one exposure, not a blend. I'd appreciate some CC for next time.
The night sky at 10,000 feet is just epic...
I would only suggest this: More sky, less foreground.
Otherwise, I only hope I get a chance to capture such a shot someday.
