If you ever wondered what it looks like under the snow

I know the road is in this, but have been wanting to get a shot of the Milky Way running above the road for awhile. This was taken on the 120 around Tenaya Lake.

That's an interesting one. Almost gives the feel like it's a river instead of small runoff with massive snow above.

The road in there is a really cool foreground idea. Nice work.

I'm certain that most of my BP trips were adventures.

ultra wide lens creates the extreme perspective. Camera was maybe 2 inches above the small stream. Fill flash lit up the snow

A small scale version of what places in Greenland may look like in a decade or two.

Same day as the morning image above, just a little further down the trail:

The view from our tent just east of Parker Pass in late June. We had to move our location from the last time we camped at that lake due to a large snow field covering up the location we used last time. We didn't see any other hikers between Mono Pass and Island Pass on the JMT going across Koip Peak Pass, and then from Gem Lake to Waugh Lake, up to Weber Lakes and cross country from there to Island Pass.
