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,

Starry Lake

Every once in a while everything comes together to create the perfect moment:



High in the Uinta Mountains, the still waters of alpine lakes make the perfect window to the sky. This lake is Teapot Lake, but it could just as well have been any one of numerous lakes in the Uintas. I hope you’ll take a moment to view up to the sky of course, but down to the water below as well.

Thank you so much to all of you who subscribe and share these panoramas.

Have a Great Day!

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!
