Clear Lake, RMNP, Manitoba, Canada

IMG_8053F Thought photographing Sagittarius and the Milky Way would yield a nice image. The sky conditions weren't as dark as I had hoped for. Light pollution was definitely present from this vantage point. That's what's giving the lower sky it's orange tint. The bluish purple tint is not real, just a product of my imagination. If you look closely there is a faint meteor streaking down just above the tea pot (Sagittarius). The handle of the teapot made a very nice reflection off the water.

This photo was taken from the Spruces, a picnic area located on the north shore of Clear Lake.

Colours are totally unnatural, just a personal artistic choice.
