A Notable Photo of the 2016 International Earth & Sky Photo Contest
From the photographer: "Some nights can be very surprising when out under the stars. This particular night a lovely fog rolled through the valley across from the Paradise parking lot at Mount Rainier National Park to add an interesting element to this photo. The Milky Way core is seen rising over the Tatoosh Mountains above the massive yellow glow of light pollution from Portland, OR about 70 miles away.
Technical details: Nikon D750, 24mm F/1.4, iso 5000, and 15 seconds"
