This image of the Milk Way gliding over Crater Lake has been a two-year challenge! That’s why it’s my favorite night image! For the past two summers, wildfires hampered my plans. Finally in June, I thought it would work. I drove up to Crater Lake with a friend, spent two days enjoying the majesty of Crater Lake; however, at night, the fog rolled in and spoiled our efforts. The dream of capturing this image kept me positive and determined. In July, my son volunteered to drive me up to Crater Lake one more time and the dream became a reality! It was an awesome experience to witness! And I remembered to take the lens cover off!
