What a beautiful night last night! My friend Roger and I went out to photograph the Milky Way and at first we were hindered by too much cloud cover. After a while, though, the clouds began to move out and the Milky Way soon appeared. This is my favorite shot from last night. I really like how the clouds complement the scene. They are lit up from lights at the U.S./Canada border crossing in Grand Portage, which was just a few miles away. This is one of my favorite tree lines in all of Cook County. Love these old growth pines! They sure make for a nice foreground to the night sky.
