This evening was incredible. I was running and slipping on the ridge here trying to get in a couple shots before the approaching dawn light washed the stars out. Let me tell you- down booties don't give the best traction in icy snow! laughing

About 15 minutes later this big Lenticular was gone. To my memory- this is the first time in the 4 yrs I've been shooting stars that I've seen a Lenticular cloud at night. What made it particularly special, is the light from Government Camp below shone directly onto it, lighting it up like the screen on a drive in movie theater.
Light pollution is both a terrible and fascinating thing.

Props to Hilleberg the Tentmaker for the performance of their Tarra tent. That thing is a bomb shelter.

Tonight, I'll be joining a couple other night shooters in a G+ Hangout talking about night photography. Come check it out if you're in the mood:
