On my way back from Joshua Tree 2 months ago, I decided to make a random detour to the Kofa Mountain Wildlife Refugee. I've seen many great photos from this place so I wanted to see it for myself. I arrived just as the sun was setting so I wasn't able to do any scouting which made shooting much more challenging.
As soon as the sun set, the night sky showed itself and stunned me with it's dark beautiful skies. I was able to see the milkyway very clearly and even saw quite a few shooting stars. After shooting for a few hours I took a nice nap in the car and waited for sunrise which is what this area is known for. Watching the sunlight creep through the canyons was by far my favorite experience and I rarely shoot sunrises. I hope you enjoyed this little video! Since this was my first time there, I wasn't able to do any scouting. Now that I h I plan on returning to shoot more soon.
