I just finished a road trip through Oregon and Washington. The first night I set out to get an image I've been wanting for quite some time. And oh boy it was a lot of work to put together. My edited file is over 8GB large!

This is Crater Lake under the Milky Way, which isn't anything you haven't seen. But I wanted to capture all of Crater Lake, and the surrounding trees, brush, rock, dirt complete the experience at CL so I set out to capture it.

Getting a good foreground at night-dusk isn't easy, especially when you're having to take lots of photos to stitch them together to get everything in focus.

Under the night sky at Crater Lake is such an otherworldly experience. It's only 2 hours or less from the Rogue Valley and you can just drive in 24 hours a day, I recommend doing it sometime! Pull up a chair and stargaze! If you catch the Milky Way it's one of the brightest ways I've seen it with my own eyes.

Hope you enjoy!
