I took another trip out late at night. This time to Tipsoo Lake. Unfortunately, I think there is apparently quite a bit of light pollution behind Rainier, though I can't really figure out what from. On the plus side, I didn't see any elk or deer alongside the road, so it was a nice drive. I did hear a bear or elk huff at me from not far away. Needless to say, I decide it was time to pack in at that point I think my struggle now is in getting the sky to look dark. Everything turns out more of a light brown. When I adjust the white balance, I can get it a bit bluer, but not the black that I want the sky to be. Suggestions? Thoughts? Comments? 1. Milky Way Lake by RxForB3, on Flickr 2.

I think that last shot (the first of the night) is the most in focus for the stars (hence why they're so small).
