We are looking forward to visiting this peaceful spot a few days from now: Azizcohos Lake in northwest Maine. The weather forecast (and the lunar cycle) aren’t adding up for great Milky Way photographs, but I’m crossing my fingers for some loons and other wildlife instead.
(Apologies for the “break” in July… just bad timing to get something out in time (it was halfway through July before I realized I didn’t make a post.)

Technical: Canon 7D, EF 16-35mm at 16mm, 150 second exposure, f/11, ISO 160. (based on the numbers I must have had an ND filter or two on it). Processed in Lightroom CC. Just some minor exposure tweaks, medium contrast curve. Luminance noise at 20 took care of most of the sensor noise for this long exposure. (I’m looking forward to seeing how my Fuji cameras will do with this type of exposure times.)
