fire on the mountain run boys run

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. Dave and I were out looking for dark skies. We found clouds reflecting light from the town of Radium. Clouds and light pollution are not desirable for night photography. It doesn’t take much light to wash out the Milky Way. We ended up taking only a handful of shots.

I discarded all of the pictures except this one. It is interesting. The light is reflecting off the clouds and onto the snow on the mountaintop. The long exposure captures the clouds moving. Part of the Orion Constellation, including the belt, can be seen in the upper left of the frame.
