My business partners from Highline West and I decided to take a spontaneous trip north of Vancouver to try to capture the milky way. We felt the conditions were optimum as the forecast called for clear skies. We headed north in the evening towards Porteau Cove, away from all the city lights, and saw what was a beautiful night sky filled with stars, meteors, and the milky way. This was my first attempt in capturing the night sky, which proved to be a challenge in the dark. I'm looking forward in taking advantage of the landscapes of British Columbia as backdrops to future star gazing photography.
