  1. Wonderful work, Tim. Thanks for bringing the much needed memories of the High Sierras at night back to me with a separate folder for Squaw Valley.

    • Judy thank you. Squaw has some light pollution. You have to know where to look and have no moon. The center of the Milky Way doesn’t get above 21 degrees from the horizon. I was fortunate I was there on a good night.
      I just got done taking images of the Milky Way from the Southern beach at Fire Island National Seashore. I’d like to see how they turned out but I’m too tired. That will have to wait till tomorrow.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog, Tim, the photo is absolutely beautiful. How wonderful to be able to see such a night sky. From 2006-9 we lived in an area of New South Wales, Australia, where there were no lights at night whatsoever, and the view of the stars in such a black sky was brilliant.

    • You’re welcome. Yes, dark skies can be so beautiful. Unfortunately, most people have gotten used to light pollution that they don’t realize how bad it has gotten.
      Also, thank you for wandering around my blog and then following me. It is greatly appreciated.
      Best with all of your photography, especially the ones at night. By the way, there is a lot of information on night photography on You Tube and it’s free.
