That afternoon I drove up to the Alabama Hills to photograph the milky way. One of the great things about the Alabama Hills are the hundreds of hidden arches and rock formations scattered all over the place that make for amazing compositions. The Alabama Hills is a great place for astrophotography. I was hoping to photography the Milky Way with one of my favorite arches, Lady Boot Arch. If you can time it right Boot Arch aligns perfectly with the Milky Way. I looked up and spotted the Lady Boot Arch as we waited for astronomical twilight as the stars came out. Sure, enough the Milky Way rose perfectly over Lady Boot Arch.
