Description

This 20 minute exposure was just before moonrise and at the begining of the exposure there was no color in the sky. In the last 5 or so minutes this awesome display of northern lights started as I got excited to know it was being captured (or hoped it would be). I made a point to capture the star trails in the water as well but the colors was just luck. The faint orange glow at the base of the mountains is from a few stragling cars returning from Logan Pass on the Going to the Sun Highway.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


 

The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
