SUMMIT COUNTY — I’m super-psyched to be hosting a guest photography post by self-taught widefield landscape astrophotographer Daniel McVey, a resident of Summit County, Colorado for more than 10 years. McVey has been honing his night photography skills for about six years.
“I first started the trial and error process when I lived up on Boreas Pass,” McVey said. “At night I would hike out to Rocky Point and give it a go. I found that there is a lot of practice, patience, pre-planning, and painfully-frozen fingertips to try to get the image you envision. I seldom record my composition exactly as planned but I’m not unhappy with my end results.”
