In this episode we recap our first adventure out to Joshua Tree National Park and capturing a Milky Way Panorama over The Eye or Cyclops Rock and the amazing Joshua Trees on our way out to the LA area. With changes to our plans of getting out to the Yosemite Firefall we found ourselves in the area with lots of extra time so we booked a Day Trip out to Santa Cruz Island of the Channel Islands! We get to see pygmy Island Foxes and beautiful birds as they fly around the cliff faces of the Island coastline and enjoy a day out in a location we had no expectations of getting to see this soon!
We talk about the challenges of getting your Milky Way low-level lighting right in a location you don’t know especially when you get there in the dark and have to work fast with a quickly approaching Milky Way.
Then we cover the experience out at the Channel Islands and how to best go about a day trip to Santa Cruz and make the most of your time there. We had a great time on this trip and saw a lot of different landscapes, people, wildlife and enjoyed the adventure with minimal hiccups. In the end of the podcast we talk about an amazing occurrence as we return to the mainland leaving the Channel Islands further and further behind we get to live through one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had in our lives!
