Trips: Anza Borrego Desert State park

April 22, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Some photos from a recent trip to Anza Borrego desert state park. I drove along the jasper trail for a while before settling on a campsite with lots of boulders and rock outcroppings. A clear sky was forecast and my main goal was to make some compositions of rock outcropping in the area with the milky way as a backdrop. Unfortunately it stayed cloudy most of the night with the sky waiting to clear until 2:30 in the morning. I was finally able to get some milky way photos.

A giant boulder with lights from Salton City and the Imperial Valley visible in the background. Unfortunately the cloud cover got worse before it got better.


I spent my day hiking from peak to peak among some of the areas hillsides. I was rewarded with some nice views of the southern mountain ranges in Anza Borrego Desert State Park.

Lots of flowers dotting the hillsides.

Near Sunset.

Milky Way Finally the sky cleared and I was able to get some milky way photos.

A star trail blended with a single high ISO image of the milky way.
