Trees silhouetted against the Milky Way stars, as they shine over Jenny Lake and the reflecting Grand Teton peak, Grand Teton National Park. The reddish-orange glow on the left is light pollution from the town of Jackson (about 20 miles away). The lesser glow to the right is from the small town of Driggs (15 miles), Idaho; and the city of Idaho Falls (75 miles), Idaho.

Virtually all my NightScapes are ONE exposure (less than 30 seconds), and with very little Photoshop correction. For more how-to and behind the scenes information, visit my Into The Night Photography blog. For Milky Way photography workshops, visit my NightScape Events page. You can order PRINTS here.
