Night Sky over White Mountains
no images were found
So when I found myself in New Hampshire’s White Mountains a couple of weeks ago, I made a point to take a late night drive over the Kancamangus Highway, a 32 mile stretch through National Forest. No towns, just mountains and road.
I grabbed this shot at a scenic overlook about halfway over the highway. The distant lights were barely visible it the naked eye, but jumped off of the LCD.
Absolutely beautiful photo! Looks like you could get lost in the stars..
I just love this one, Bob, what a great photo! Those lights in the far distance there are absolutely mesmerizing, as are the stars in the sky!
OMG this is just brilliant Bob. I love it. How long of an exposure did you use?
Thanks guys … Edith, the exposure was 45 seconds, f/4 at 1600 ISO. The lens was the Nikon 16-35. Its a little slow.
I think45 seconds was JUST a bit too long. You can see the stars starting to take on an egg shape, but I’m happy with it overall.
This is beautiful Bob! The high ISO is perfect – with astral photography you really have to experiment until you get in the ballpark 🙂
It’s amazing how many more stars appear in the image that you don’t see with your naked eye. Really nice, thanks for sharing.
Love this photo.
