Uinta Mountains, Pass Lake, Utah “Night Glow”


Limited Edition of 100 prints

I took this image on July 2, 2019. We had taken the week off to spend every moment in the mountains photographing and relaxing. I had scouted this location earlier in the day and visualized exactly how I wanted this image to look. We arrived back onsite before dark and enjoyed the evening waiting and listening to the frogs chirping. I was worried about clouds building as this location is over 10,000 feet and storms can come up quick blocking the view of the galaxy. When the sky was perfect I started shooting. I shot vertical images panning from left to right with each exposure, which would be ‘stitched’ together later to capture the whole scene . My exposure was ISO 6400, 25 seconds at f/2.8. I knew there was a glow on the horizon but you never know what colors will show up until you’ve taken the exposure. Imagine my surprise when I viewed the images  on my camera’s screen and found the wonderful red glow! I was even happier when I edited the images to find the wonderful magenta color in the clouds and the green air glow. This image turned out even better than I had visualized!
