Mt. St. Helens and Milky Way 1:57 a.m. July 3rd, 2016

Taken from the Loowit Viewpoint on the way to Johnston Ridge.
Canon 6D
Rokinon 14mm F2.8
ISO 3200, 30 sec. exposure at F2.8

This was a tough one for me. I had to setup quickly to get shots between rolling banks of fog that would come in suddenly, completely obscure the entire scene, then just as quickly pass through. Fortunately I snagged this shot as the last clear window of weather presented itself. I stayed until morning hoping to get a shot of the wonderful wildflowers on display with the mountain in the background, but the fog was completely socked in until at least 8 a.m. when I finally left to drive back home.
