Night Glow

The smoke and haze from the many western wildfires accentuates the sky glow from Jackson Hole and the nearby airport but the Milky Way still shows itself above the North Moulton barn along Antelope Flats Road in Grand Teton National Park.


Camera Nikon D3S

Exposure 30

Aperture f/2.8

Focal Length 14 mm

ISO Speed 6400


To light-paint the barn, I walked to the left and quickly swept a flashlight across the scene.

    Although the lighjting on the barn and fence is dramatic, Ilike the way you brought out the detail of the milky way without sacrificing the surrounding stars.

    Very good, you painted with light on the barn, so the photo is more even lit. Great details in the sky.

    Great shot! I'm very impressed. Do you need a motorized mount to track the star movement to get these shots?

    Gosh, I wish I had been with you. I could have shot the D800 and it would have been fun to compare them. This is so incredible and beautifully taken as well.
