Otter Cliffs and the Milky Way

Otter Cliffs and the Milky Way.
I had horrible internet at the hotel so I didn’t get to post this image this morning. I am at the Airport in Bangor getting ready to head back to Bear Woods. I had to leave a day early, something to do with a tree falling on our Subaru Outback. Luckily Evelyn wasn’t in it so now starts the process of getting it repaired.
Anyhow, the National Parks Night Skies Photography Workshop went very well. The conditions, especially at Otter Cliffs were perfect. I wasn’t fortunate enough to capture any of the meteors in my frames, but several people did. As you can see the Milky Way aligned perfectly with the cliffs. The cliffs were lit by an approaching car, you can even see our shadows on the rocks in the foreground. Everyone got some great images and left this morning very tired, and very happy. This is my last one of these workshops this year but we are starting to plan the events for next year. Such a great new way to see our National Parks!
