Description

While doing research for a trip to Glacier National Park it quickly became evident that most of my time would be spent in Logan Pass. On this particular evening my hopes at an epic sunset faded quickly and not a cloud could be seen in the skies. I gave up on sunset and switched gears .. it was time to use the rented lenses to photograph the Milky Way. A copious number of streams, rivers, waterfalls, and small patches of wildflowers awaited my every turn and provided countless possibilities for compositions. Using the StarWalk app on my iPhone I was able to roughly predict the path of the Milky Way. I quickly saw that the Milky Way would line up almost parallel to the right side of Mt. Reynolds with the core of the Milky Way in between the mountain and the trees. Perfect! I loved the way the waterfall cascaded down from Mt. Reynolds. It's almost like there's steps leading us right into the sky! By 11:30pm the Milky Way finally moved into position. Just as I had predicted the Milky Way lined up perfectly with Mt. Reynolds and the core filled the right side of the sky!
