Above The Stars

Captured at 2am from the infamous snake river overlook in Grand Teton National Park, this image required several elements all working in harmony.  The milky way, deliberately placed above the Grand Teton, can only be seen in this exact position once each year and required a moonless night, clear skies and a willingness to stay up all night in order to capture this amazing moment in time.  The sky’s greenish hue is the result of airglow, the emission of faint green or magenta light by particles in the upper atmosphere when they’re struck by cosmic rays.
