Leading A Horse To Water
I don't think it was just me that felt something special at this spot at Firehole Lake in Yellowstone National Park. With the gentle steam and the glowing stars reflecting in the calm water, the view was stunning. But what really got my attention were all the sounds of Yellowstone at night. The breeze was really gentle so it carried all the sounds of the wild right to our ears - making a wonderful experience.
In this image, Jupiter looks like it's leading the Dark Horse (nebula) to the waters of Firehole Lake.
How I Got The Shot
To keep the noise to a minimum, I shot 21 frames after I dialed in my settings. This allowed me to shoot at ISO 12,800 and get quality results with very little noise.
