I spent Saturday night photographing nightscapes around Silver Lake, in Brighton, Utah

This is seriously addicting!  It is fascinating to use a camera to capture something hidden in the night sky. I love the Milky Way and the explosion of color that goes with it. You need to find a dark place away from city lights to pull off a great nightscape. Check out this ebook by Royce Bair, who is the master nightscape photographer in the world! It was fun to work with you and I can’t wait to join one of your workshops!

Milky Way photography with Light Painting at Silver Lake, Brighton, UtahI am not sure why, but the distant hill came up in bright red light!  Perphaps someone had a campfire blazing and with a long shutter of 20 seconds it exposures the red glow enough to be seen. Or may someone else was just light painting across the way?

I positioned my tripod so it would shoot straight up, then I practically laid on the ground to get this angle and composition. I wanted the milky way to appear to be coming out of the treetops.
