Jack Fusco – Mt Rainier – Sigma 14-24 E Mount – 1

Knowing I wouldn’t have long to shoot, I wanted to make sure I could show off the full range of the lens. I found this spot that looked perfect to shoot at both 14 and 24. When shooting the night sky, that difference in focal length can make a huge impact on the overall feeling the image presents. I love the way the trail acted as a leading line right toward Rainier and the Milky Way. Since it was a bit later in the night, the Milky Way was in the perfect position in the sky for this composition to work. This image was the first image I shot at the longer focal length of the lens, right at 24mm, giving the scene a more intimate feeling of being along the path at night.
