Galactic Canyon

The Milky Way over the Palouse River Canyon. Press L to view this in the lightbox!

 

In the summer, the falls are pretty weak; so I wanted to focus on what, to me, is the most interesting part of the scene without the falls raging - the canyon.

 

Plus, the lens I had at the time wasn't really wide enough to compose the full scene the way I wanted, and I'm too lazy to stitch long exposures.

 

Full disclosure: this is a blend of an exposure taken at twilight for the foreground at ISO 100, and then the Milky Way from the same spot later at ISO 3200.

 

I've made some updates to my website - check out this image on it here and take a look around!
