Brief Directions

Obtain backcountry permit at the ranger station at Jenny Lake and head for the south shore of Snowdrift Lake, a truly idillic and remote location at just over 10,000ft.

Notes

The foreground is sharp and noise-free because I blended two exposures. The blend is absolutely necessary here, because to capture so much light above and little star movement I needed to expose at f/2.8, ISO 3200 with noise reduction applied later, which wouldn't have worked for the foreground. The foreground image was taken 6 hours earlier and the camera was not moved.

Description

The milky way formation over peaks in the Teton range. The glow behind the peaks comes from the moonset half an hour before.
