Changing Light at Lamoille Lake
Lamoille Lake in Nevada’s Ruby Mountains, at dawn:
And some very different light from the previous night. Starlight photography is not something I’ve tried very often, and I don’t think I’d dare to make a large print of this, but I’m willing to share it on the web. I blended a low ISO exposure of the landscape with a higher ISO shot to freeze the stars, and I also blended in just a bit of a version in which I light-painted the foreground boulder. It probably comes off rather better if you click through to view the full-size version on a dark background. Definitely an experiment, but I hope it imparts some of the feeling of alpine night under very dark skies.
