Stars Over Paradise

One of the benefits of camping at high altitude away from the city lights is the you usually get to see stars and lots of stars! I was blessed with a quiet still evening of beautiful stars.  The water on the lake was still and made for a wonderful image of stars reflecting off the lake at Paradise Divide.  A lone satellite streaked across the sky during this long exposure.

  • That is a killer image Rick. it is amazing how much light pollution there is until you go far enough out of the city.

  • Wow, that’s a wonderful view Rick!

  • Incredible capture Rick.

  • Stunning image, Rick. I’ve seen the best night skies when I’ve been out climbing through the night in the Alps. No light pollution at all and there are an unbelievable number of stars to be seen.

  • WOW Rick…simply stunning.

  • Pure masterpiece Rick. Wow

  • Stunning shot here, Rick. This is really fantastic, man. The thought of experiencing something like this and creating an image to mark the occasion is awesome.

  • This is great. I tried this in Yosemite last weekend, but evidently had no idea what I was doing. I’ll try again!

  • Wow! I have never seen so many stars. Would love to be at a place like this
