I had heard rumors. Rumors of some mystical astrological observation that could be seen with the naked eye, if one only knew where to look in the vast night sky.

As I spent this past week in North-Western Idaho in the small, charming lake town of McCall, I wondered to myself if I would be able to see such a wonder with my own eyes. Thinking that this would be a perfect place to catch a glimpse, located high in the mountains with Payette lake providing a large clearing, and far away from any light pollution.

As I walked down to the dock and gazed up in the direction of the comet, I wasn’t sure what I’d see. Tell tell signs said it could be seen below the Big Dipper. As I searched all around, boom, there it was. I gasped and stood in astonishment at the splendor.

The next day I found these amazing Lupine flowers that I returned to during the blue hour and then once again when the comet was visible. This image is a blend of the two. Hope you enjoy.
