Takhlakh Lenticular Night
Takhlakh Lake is a gem, hidden deep in the Gifford Pinchot Forest.
In August of 2016 I camped there with a few good friends. This late in the season, the Milky Way is pretty far West by the time it's dark enough to photograph. That makes it difficult to photography in conjunction with the mountain, so I decided to focus on the mountain, rather than the MW.
I set up my camera and left it to shoot an all night time lapse. It's always a risk leaving it out, so when I left the comfort of my sleeping bag at dawn, I was pleased to find my camera exactly where I'd left it. I was even more pleased to see the lenticular clouds in the images.
This shot is part of a time lapse you can view in the time lapse section of the site.
