The Ever Stellar Rocky Mountain National Park

View Large On Black

 

Lack of a moon allows for the stars to shine just a bit more brightly than normal. Here, the Andromeda Galaxy is just barely visible in the upper portion of the image, with the Milky Way running along a diagonal mirroring the rocks below. Some light pollution is also present and made for the primary source of light on the foreground rocks (the light pollution was much worse looking east vs west from here).
