Margaret and I are about ten days into our fall journey into the Pacific Northwest, the Canadian Rockies and then eventually onto the Upper Michigan Peninsula and fall splendor on Wisconsin. We are camped at the beautiful Cape Flattery in the northwest point of Washington state. There was beautiful weather to Crater Lake and beyond, but it has been wet and rainy in the Olympics. It’s a perfect time photographing but hard and a bit unfriendly for us to camp, since we are natives from the Sierra Nevada at home.
Crater Lake was surprisingly gorgeous! I scouted both of these sunset images and the location of the Milky Way late in the evening, really I was lucky to have subjects work well. This was the first time that I had my new 24-70 lens from Sony. This is the second version, it made the focusing a snap of the Milky Way, and I have used the lens exclusively on or trip this Autumn.
