It was around this time last year I wanted to get some Milky Way shots with the Milky Way straight up and down over this rock formation in Malibu. Only to realize after doing my research it was NOT the ideal time of the year. The MW was all sideways and not in the right position. So I waited 6 months to get this photo (shot mid 2017). I could have just photoshopped the MW in there, but what’s the fun in that when I can wait for the authentic one. Makes me feel closer and more attached to this image. Sometimes you have to wait for what you want. Plan and make it happen.
