From the photographer: "Grand Teton National Park is beautiful during the day and after sunset offers a stellar night sky view, a paradise for exploring vistas. Interestingly, this dark location showed vivid airglow with hues of green and purple very apparent in the pictures although it's invisible to the naked eye. The Milky Way was near vertical over the Teton range by the time I started shooting and despite the choppy waters the galactic dark lanes, stars of the ‘Teapot’ of Sagittarius and Saturn can be glimpsed in the reflections. On the lake shore, a bonfire warmly light-paints the conifer trees as campers around the fire sang vivaciously into the night. Also seen in the distance are the silhouettes of astrophotographers snapping away this gorgeous view."
Technical details: Sony A7S2, Tamron 15-30mm at 16mm, f/2.8 and 20 second shutter speed.
