Night at Mt Shasta, California
The Story of "Milky Way Express"
A friend of a friend wanted to learn more about photographing the Milky Way and asked if I would join her for a night under the stars. Truth be told, I was exhausted from a week of shooting night skies all over Oregon and wasn't too interested in another long night... until she sent me a photo of the location.
When I saw where we would be shooting, I was in! The train tracks lead perfectly to Mt Shasta, holding on to some late summer snow, and the Milky Way was aligned perfectly behind it.
I got some shots I truly loved that night, and what was more - I made a friend.
