The Milky Way Over Lost Lake

The Milky Way rising over Lost Lake in the Uinta Mountains of Utah:
 

 
I have 2 pairs of waders, but have never fished a day in my life!!  I use them to stand around in lakes and streams hoping for the right light or some sort of happy accident to make a memorable image.  I hope you enjoy this one!
 
Have a Great Day,

Horseshoe Bend

The Colorado River makes many twists and turns. This particular meander is a few miles south of the Utah Border, and north of its entrance to the Grand Canyon:

The river lies some 1000 ft. below this overlook, which is an easy hike from the roadway.  It’s always an interesting experience to visit these sites and stay until it’s dark, but make sure to stay away from the edge!

Silver Island Mountains

The Silver Island Mountains, just north of the Bonneville Salt Flats, at night (well, almost night):

The opening view of this panorama features a bright band of light which extends up and intersects the Milky Way. This is the Zodiacal Light, which is not the porch light of a palm reader, but illuminated dust and debris in our solar system which is concentrated along the same plane as the planets orbiting our sun.  A link below the panorama tells more about this phenomenon.

Thanks For Viewing!
