Starry Autumn Night at Oxbow

Newer Older

Stars and the Milky Way over the Tetons at Oxbow Bend, Grand Teton National Park. (The cool glow in front of Mt. Moran is coming from light pollution near the Jackson Lake Dam and Signal Mountain Lodge -- giving a nice separation between the mountain and the tree line. :) This photo was taken about 3.5 hours after sunset, using the Canon 5D M2, a 24mm lens @ F/2.0, and a 15 sec. exposure, with an ISO of 6400. BTW, there is a little-known sale going on right now for the Canon 5D Mark III (use the link in my comments, below).

    Sweet capture Royce! I really like the whole scene including how the lighting near the dam added some depth. Excellent results, my friend!
