Hypnotic Photographs of the Milky Way Over Yellowstone National Park

After a storm passed through Yellowstone National Park, astrophotographer David Lane captured the stunning beauty of the Milky Way covered sky above the Abyss Pool region. Although the photographs were taken at night, the illuminating beauty from the Milky Way gave the landscape sufficient light and a magical element to deliver this stunning sight. This natural phenomenon is defined as an airglow impedes the sky from becoming completely dark. To assure that the images match the park’s vision during the day time, Lane spent four extra months on color correcting his collection. 

“The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.”

Starry Skies by Mikko Lagerstedt

Self-taught Finnish photographer Mikko Lagerstedt loves to capture atmospheric and simplistic landscapes at night, which reveal the beauty of the open sky and nature’s scenery. Lagerstedt’s starry sky images reveal the grandiosity of nature in an isolated setting, where only the stars are Earth’s companions.
