Starry night sky and Milky Way over Jackson Lake and the Tetons, Grand Teton National Park. The mountain peak to the right of the Milky Way is the Grand Teton. The largest mountain is Mount Moran. The large star to the left of the Grand Teton is Antares. The large star above Mount Moran is Arcturus. This photo was taken near midnight. The glow to the bottom left of the Milky Way is light pollution from the town of Jackson, WY, about 25 miles away. The glow over the Teton Range is light pollution from the Idaho Falls, ID metro area, about 75 miles away. For prints of this image, go to www.NightScapePrints.com/
My new ebook, Milky Way NightScapes, gives extensive details on how to enhance the landscape foreground. Three other chapters cover planning, scouting, forecasting star/landscape alignment, shooting and post processing.
