"The Bolivian Milkyway"
Coipasa, Bolivia - 2012

Every so often I find myself in a location on this planet that touches my soul. The experiences I have in these counties have long lasting effects that have me itching to get back to these countries to further document their beauty. Bolivia is one of those places. This past year I explored much of Bolivia with a few friends (+Scott Jarvie, +roma g and +Natalia Stone) after teaching a photo workshop in Peru.

After finally having some time to look back at my images, I can tell you that I have already begun to plan my next several visits. Just know, that I don't think anyone has truly seen the Milky Way until they have seen it from Bolivian soil!

The reflections you see in the foreground were coming from the Coipasa Salt Flats, which coincidentally is commonly filled with shallow salt water. This stop was not even on our agenda, but after 3 failed attempts to cross the lake via a 4x4, we wound up here. I guess it worked out ;)

Camera Info:
Camera: Nikon D4
Lens: Nikon 24-24 2.8
ISO: 6400
Exposure: f/4 at 30 Seconds

I had purposely set the WB to shade when I shot this photo, with the desire to pull out the red and orange hues from the night sky.

Post Processing
Very little post processing went into this image. In Adobe Lightroom I adjusted the shadow slider to darken the shadow areas of image and help the stars jump out just a bit more. I then used the localized adjustment brush to brush in some clarity and a touch of sharpness to the milky way itself. I then used the vibrance and saturation sliders to balance out the color effectively. Lastly I jumped into photoshop to clean up a few tiny imperfections and then used Luminosity Masking to apply accurate noise reduction.
