This waterfall in part of the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming is beautiful no matter what the weather, but with no wind and on a new moon, the milky way shined bright and all the stars were out this night. Wyoming's dark skies and no light pollution in the wilderness made it ideal astrophotography condition. Taken as a single frame, long exposure with no HDR, light painting, or composite techniques, this photograph was processed using only traditional digital darkroom techniques and is a prime example of how spectacular the stars are in Wyoming. The mountains are lit up from starlight alone at around midnight. A truly memorable 'warm' summers night (it was 50 degrees!) in the alpine high country above 10,000 feet.
