I’ve had the idea for photographing a starry sky over the Teton mountain range in my mind’s eye for years. I just needed a relatively clear sky and the will to wake up even earlier than usual. I captured the night sky for 30 seconds at f/4 and ISO 800. The stars did form “tiny” trails, but they are totally acceptable to me and not that evident in the final image. I then waited about 1/2 hr before dawn to capture detail in the foreground and the distant Tetons (f/14, ISO 100, 13 seconds). I then combined the two exposures in Photoshop to create the final image. I was a little lucky in the sense that there were a few wispy clouds hanging around which manifested as subtle pinkish hues in the sky. I hope you enjoy the image and a few others from the Tetons. I plan to take some more shots tomorrow morning before heading back to Seattle. If I get anything worth sharing, I’ll add it to this blog.
