 Ice Lake Basin and the Perseids   

Finally got around to editing all my photos and writing the trip report from Vermillion/Fuller and the Perseid Meteor Shower. Hope you enjoy.

Here are a few shots from the full trip report.

Needless to say, Ice Lake Basin is one amazing spot. I am in awe of that place. I have already begun making plans to return next year for a summit of Golden Horn and / or Pilot Knob.

Great place for night photos too. Have about 60 photos total in the trip report.

Wow, Matt, fantastic photos! Probably the best I've seen on this site, really impressive (click on the full TR link, everyone). I'm taking you along as an Eleventh Essential on my next trip!

I agree with Tom. These are stunning photos! You've definitely upped your game, and are setting the bar pretty much out of reach.

Those are some of the best night sky photos I've seen. I assume most of those have no post processing barring the ones where you had explicitly stated 'special processing techniques'?

Thanks everyone

@maverick - appreciate it - I shoot 100% RAW format, so all of my photos are edited a bit - I try to make it realistic
