Description

This picture is actually the result of a failed time lapse video. I came to this state park because it has the darkest skies in my state, far away from sources of light pollution. I was attempting to shoot a time lapse of the milky way rising, but the humidity caused my lens to fog over after only 15 minutes. But there were a lot of fireflies flying around in those 15 minutes. I decided to try something different and stack 10 frames of the firefly trails. I only used the lower portion of the frames, so the milky way remained plainly visible.
