Milky Way at Bucks Lake


Image Credit & Copyright: Jeremy Johnson.

What a fantastic image of our home star city over Bucks Lake and surrounding landscape in Northern California. I really love the colors in this image and the transition from the light horizon into the dark sky. This image really goes the extra distance in showing how much of the Milky Way’s light is actually shrouded behind the thick disk of material that laces it. That material is the same material that helped create the stars in the galaxy and it will continue to do so for a very long time.

Bucks Lake is located in Northern California’s Plumas National Forest, North of Lake Tahoe and South of Lassen Volcanic National Park. The California Mountains are, in my opinion some of the most beautiful in the world. From the lakes and forests, to the open rocky terrain of the high mountains it’s a nature lover’s paradise with seemingly endless points of interest to explore along the way.

I hope you enjoyed this image and check out more of Jeremy’s work.

      Hello. This is an image from Jeremy Johnson. I have all of his links at the bottom of the post if you wish to contact him. If I were to guess this was mid to late summer by the position of the milky way. Have a great weekend.
