Stars, Milky Way, Jackson Lake, Grand Teton NP

Newer Older

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.

    Hello ….and thank you for allowing us the honour to display your work.

    This Gallery's mandate is to attempt to display the BEST images on flickr and to be a trusted source of opinion …...to put greatness beside greatness…….. and to create "MERIT" as there are very few on flickr ( Galleries) who are as eclectic in opportunity or as consistent….... to be accepted to the FCF Gallery is really the award…….. that really means something of value….it is a honest award …...signifying upper echelon distinction of your image .

    FCF is a standard of reliability …….. that those photographers participating with world class images (such as this image) know that they can believe and be assured, with confidence, that to have images accepted to FCF means an honest qualification that ALL the work accepted to "Flickr's Chosen Few" is of the highest of standards……our opinions can be trusted …..as the serious of the endeavour is a true statement that you have accomplished being one of the best……….. thank you for posting your magnificence…..HB.

    Congratulations on receiving more than 25,000 views -- that's quite impressive! Now that you've reached this major milestone, you might want to consider graduating this photograph from the 'Views: 10000' group to the 'Views: 25,000' group, which can be found here: www.flickr.com/groups/views25000/

    Once again, congratulations and hopefully your photos will receive many more views in the future! Reminder: Per group rules, photos must only be in one 'Views:xx' group at a time. Once you have graduated the photograph from one 'Views: xx' group to another, remember to remove the photograph from all previous 'Views: xx' groups.
