Milky Way over Mount Chephren

A shot I've been after for over a year. The milky way only really lines up with Chephren on a new moon a few times each year and I finally got what I hoped would be a weather window. Heading up onto the Icefields Parkway, driving through cloudy patches, I was happy to see that the location was clear. As the sun set and darkness arrived (around 1am here in Alberta this time of year) I had a window of about an hour before the night sky would become brighter with the rising sun. 40 shots stacked for the MW and a number of shots blended for the foreground, mountain and light trails. Hope you enjoy it.
