Mist rises from the south end of String Lake as it reflects the Milky Way and flows into Jenny Lake, Grand Teton National Park. Teewinot Mountain is on the left, Middle Teton on the right, and Grand Teton is in the middle from this angle. Silhouettes of dead trees are from the Alder Fire, cause by lightning in 1999. This photo was taken during my 2013 June Teton NightScape Workshop. Canon 5D Mark III • Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 • 20-sec @ f/2.8 • ISO 6400 (68-second for second exposure of foreground, blended with 20-second sky exposure).
Most of my NightScapes are ONE exposure (less than 30 seconds), with little Photoshop post-production, except for contrast increases to the sky.
