milky way over tioga pass

We drove up to Tioga Pass after twilight to attempt to capture the Milky Way. That night the Milky Way aligned perfectly over the Kuna Crest and Tioga Pass framed by Mt. Dana and Gaylor Peak. Plus it was calm enough to get a great reflection in Tioga Lake! The stars were so vibrant you could even see the planet Jupiter. To create this photograph I took 8 images and stacked them for the Milky Way to reduce noise and artifacts.
