Wheel in the Sky Photo Contest Finalist

Wheel in the Sky
This is a 4.5 hour exposure at f2.8. It was taken in the Jemez mountains during the night of a cool clear night in October, just after a new moon. I used Fuji Reala 100 that may have helped bring out the scattered blue star light because of its extra cyan emulsion layer.

Nice job, Steven - all it takes is to be away from those horrid city lights, and in an atmospherically clear area - and the Jemez Mtns are certainly that! Cool colors...

Nice photo. I like the "wheels". I have been out there in the blistering cold for many years. But never captured this type of image. Very nice.

Tushar, thanks for the comment. It was very cold! Keep trying, there is a certain amount of luck involved too. -steve

Great photo! I can't help the sensation of just wanting to jump in and swim among the stars.
