Volcanic Twilight II

Washington's Mount Rainier and a starry pre-dawn sky at Reflection Lake. Definitely best viewed on a dark background, so press L to check it in the lightbox!

 

This is the "sequel" to one of my favorite images, Volcanic Twilight. Both are twilight/star blends, and are attempts at doing iconic PNW volcano/lake images a bit differently.

 

Tech details: one exposure for everything taken just as the first hint of alpenglow was beginning to hit the mountain, and one exposure for the stars taken earlier in the night (overlaid with a Lighten layer).

 

Landscape: 1.3 sec, ISO 100, f/9

Stars: 30 sec, ISO 1600, f/3.5
