Milk Way

One of the great things about living in Helena is you don’t have to travel more than 15 minutes out of town to get some dark skies. No luck on the northern lights this weekend, but it’s always nice to be out under the stars.

If you’re in the Helena area this Friday, be sure to stop by St. Paul’s United Methodist church and say ‘Hello’ as I’ll be displaying some of my photography during the Downtown Helena Fall Art walk.

Milky Way over Canyon Ferry Lake

First stab at grabbing a shot of the Milky Way. Have some things to work on, but learned a lot. Taken last night over Canyon Ferry Lake.
