Mid week, the Milky Way was calling and so I had to go. Century Lakes Highway is actually still closed at this time of year but they had just finished plowing the road! So, I loaded up a borrowed Bike Trailer and started riding and hoping that there were sections of Soda Springs that had melted and possibly formed lakes. As you can see below I found one of the lakes. Needless to say it was a cold night of camping on the snow but worth it. #nightshooters#milkyway#nightsky#bend#inbend#mtbachelor#d750

Again, I love this sunset race series.
Old goldens are the best. This is the give me a treat for "allowing" my picture to be taken look.
Sparks Lake Aurora
Monday night folks in the northern states were treated to a very rare occurrence and that was an aurora display that was visible to the naked eye. This shot was taken at around 2am and was from an hour long period where the beams you see danced back and forth behind the mountains. The other photographers and I stood transfixed at what we were seeing while our camera continued to shoot. It truly was a magical night.
Dancing Beams over Sparks Lake, Bend, Oregon
Monday night folks in the northern states were treated to a super rare showing of the aurora with a brightness not usually seen. Here is a quick time-lapse of about a hour of the show. #aurora#bend#visitbend#nightsky
