Here is a long exposure of Mount Hood and the Milky Way, with a small meteor above galactic center. My goal was to use the lines created by the Milky Way and it's reflection to draw the viewer right into the center of the frame and Mount Hood. I also went for the inclusion of these two rocks on the shore of Lost Lake as anchors for my photo. Some technical details: Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24, f/2.8, ISO 3200, 30 seconds. I combined exposures taken on the same night, one earlier than the other, to get good exposure on Mount Hood. I enhanced the reflection of the Milky Way to make it more visible and to achieve the vision I had for the image.
