Ansel Adams setting up for a shoot in Yosemite, 1935

Star trails over my campsite in the Snowy Range of Wyoming.  This was a wonderfully peaceful and calm night where I decided to take an easy one night backpack trip into the wild.  Just before heading to bed, I set up the camera and left the shutter open all night long.

Shot Notes:

Provia 100f 4x5, 75mm Super Angulon

7 hours at f8, no filters

A dramatic morning storm dumped rain, hail, sleet and snow on me while I watched the sunrise over Bear Lake.  There was such a nice mix of oranges and reds up there this year :)

1 second at f22, 1 stop soft GND filter
