Starlight Mountain Ski Hill

    Newer Older

    While skiers and snowboarders may have been fast asleep in their nice warm beds, a beautiful celestial light appeared above. In this composite image, the Milky Way appears above one of the highest ski areas in North America - Arapahoe Basin, west of Denver, Colorado.

    On this spontaneous early morning drive up the pass, I decided that a few more cool images from Summit County would do well at the Dillon Art Festival this coming June. I got approved to attend as an exhibitor so I thought I'd make sure to be ready with a few more nightscapes from the area.
