I’m taking you back to Grand Teton National Park again today, but this time for a night-time image from Signal Mountain. During the day up on Signal Mountain in the early summer months, the side of Signal Mountain is covered with wild flowers. The top of the mountain gives you a great view over the Teton Valley and a view of the Grand Teton Mountain Range. At Night, it’s a great place to get a large view of the sky over the Teton Valley. This evening started out with some cloud cover but then some brief winds took the storm clouds away leaving the night sky filled with the Milky Way.
The lights in the bottom of the image come from the Jackson Lake Lodge area and also captured the International Space Station streaking across the sky. This is a 9-image stitch. The exposures were a little long for the 14mm lens so you can see some star movement in the images. I’m looking forward to the warm summer months again. Standing out in the dark of the night sure is more pleasant in the summer than in the winter.
