Eagle’s Rest Milky Way.
 
I belong to my local Camera Club, The Big Canoe Camera Club, because it is great having others in your area to shoot with, learn from and share information with, basic fellowship. I gave a presentation last month to the group on night skies photography and suggested an outing when the moon was new. We decided to meet up here on the mountain at a park called Eagle’s Rest. There is a platform that faces south so the core or disk of the Milky Way would be visible. There were 9 of us I think at the outing and it appeared the skies would be filled with clouds at first but it cleared really nicely. During the shoot one of the participants, Jen, decided to check out the view from the platform. Another participant, Mark, quickly recognized a great shooting opportunity. Seeing the great images being created I asked if Jen would stand still and pose for a few more images. Thankfully she did so and I was able to capture a few images. The corner of the platform lined up with a “window” in the trees to capture the Milky Way and Jen’s headlamp was a great touch too. Thanks Mark for the idea, and Jen for being such a patient model, even though you had come to shoot!
