    Last week before New Year's, I was up in Tahoe and noticed there was a new moon. I don't get out to dark skies often, so I braved the cold night air to do some shooting. Unfortunately, the milky way is not visible at night this time of year though, so I have to settle for some more regular-looking starry skies. Here are my keepers, shot with the A7rII, 28/2, and 16-35/4:

    #2 for me, beautiful sky tones. I like that every picture has something else than just stars.

    Everyone should get out of town every once in a while and see the real night sky.

    Thanks for sharing

    Excellent series!!
    Difficult to pick a winner - they are all winners as far as I'm concerned :2thumbs:
    This is something I'd like to try myself
