Trona Pinnacles Field Trip - May 20, 2023

Lancaster Photography Association is planning a field trip to Trona Pinnacles on May 20, 2023. It is new moon time, so it will be great for night photography such as Milky Way and Star Trail Photography. Let’s hope for clear skies and some great photos! There is little, if any, cell phone reception there, so plan ahead. Bring snacks and water.

We will meet at the Main Parking Lot on the north-west side of the Pinnacles at 6:00 p.m. (The restroom is located there). I will send out a map to those who sign up.

Sunset is at 7:53 p.m., so that gives us about 2 hours to scout the area and choose some locations for our night shots. Bring your camera with a wide angle, f2.8 (or lowest you have), a tripod, a remote trigger or intervalometer, and a comfortable chair. If you are doing star trails you will be sitting around for a while!

Some people may be spending the night there and others may choose to get a hotel in Ridgecrest or drive home, depending on how late you want to stay. That is entirely up to you.
