Delton, this is a fine mix of stars and snowy mountain. I like how the Milkyway arches in and then the slope of the mountain slides in the opposite direction. It looks like there may be some shadows in the snow, which adds nicely to the textures there.

Mark: Thank you. Much fun in middle of the night.

This is stunning Delton. Beautiful light on the peak backed up with a crystal clear Milky Way. Great image!

Great impact here, with the snow contrasting the dark sky.
Perfect stars and lighting.

Sandy: Thank you. These very late nights are loads of fun.

Thanks, Ed. I sure do enjoy these starry night projects
