Baker Lake Road heads north from Highway 20. Skirting Lake Shannon, Baker Lake and finally the Baker River the road leads to darkness! About 20 miles up the road makes a sweeping curve over a cement bridge and this view of Mount Baker opens up.
Mount Baker under the Big Dipper
The roads end soon follows and a short hike in the darkness offered this view of Baker River.

Enjoy your pictures! Are the “lines” in the second picture shooting stars? jets?
I am not sure what they are, I did not see them when I shot the image. It would be cool if they were shooting stars, but most likely they are satellites.
Wow… great work 🙂 I know how hard it’s to get a decent night sky shot…
Thank you! Yes, the conditions have to be perfect, and last night was mostly clear, but there were still some mist and low clouds…
Some amazing pictures there.
Thanks! Love your name!
Thanks – reflects our destination 🙂
What is the best lens or setting to use for nighttime photography?
Generally the wider the lens the better. I had been using a 24mm lens but just got a 14mm, which is what I shot these images with. As for settings, use a wide open aperture, and a 15 to 20 second exposure.

That is such an incredible shot…the stars, stars, stars forever!
Thanks! I got lucky on the shooting stars or satellites, or what ever they are adds an extra something to the image.
That was really a special shot ~ superb!
