McWay Falls - Big Sur, California

There are a handful of technical challenges shooting this location at night;

1) Lack of ambient light
2) Distance of subject from shooting platform for lighting purposes
3) Sea mist in the cove causing unwanted light reflections

When I recently got the invite from @jamesdphotog to shoot the falls, I was excited because this is a spot I haven't photographed with the Milky Way. I had photographed the  falls at night once before and I remember the challenges listed above, so I tried to plan ahead as much as possible. I went to Big 5 and found the brightest flashlight available - 1500 Lumens. 
This is a single image, lit using that flashlight, along with a CTO gel in front of the light to aid in color correction. I had to do a fair amount of dehazing in post-production to increase the contrast of the foreground. When light painting into the sea mist, the result is very hazy with some of the light reflecting back toward the camera. Had a blast hanging out with @luke_phillips_photography and met @downtofowler out there!

Last night was mostly clear so I took advantage of the favorable moon phase and relatively good sky conditions and proceeded to deprive myself of sleep. I ended up getting just under 3 hours of sleep - not sure how I'm still awake honestly. 😂

I've been thinking about using these cement towers near Oso Flaco in a night shot for a while now, and with a sliver moon rising on the left, here's the result from last night.
