Photographer Captures Oregon’s Starscapes

Ben Canales got into photography after an accident with a table saw. His friend lent him a camera to bide his time while his hand healed, and Oregon’s landscapes proved a worthy subject. One night while soaking in the Paulina Lake hot springs, Canales found an even more brilliant take on Oregon spaces. He was enraptured by the Milky Way overhead and fiddled with the camera until he got a picture speckled with more stars than he could see with a naked eye. Since then, he has spent six years turning his lenses to the night sky, and his photography has taken him on adventures across Oregon.
