Photograph - Digital
Burlington Northern Sante Fe railroad spur and the Milky Way galactic core at Flannigan in northwestern Nevada USA on a somewhat hazy late spring evening.
This image is a blend of several sky exposures "stacked" to reduce digital "noise" and several more longer exposures for the foreground where I "light painted" the tracks while walking around with a handheld flashlight. On this particular evening the haze in the air made it more reflective of the light to the point where the red signal light on the spur actually reflected off the atmosphere adding extra red (and somewhat eerie to me) glow. The golden glow to the clouds on the right of the frame is reflected light from nearby Reno Nevada. I never cease being fascinated by how much more the camera "sees" at night compared to the human eye.
