Purple Dreams

December 11, 2018

I went out this year to really try to push my astrophotography skills. I tried all sort of different techniques to figure out which conditions fit my aesthetic. I shot this during a quarter moon, which helped illuminate the flowers while giving nice detail to the milky. The light pollution to the right of mount st helens is from Portland and Vancouver. I loved how the night lit up from the moon, giving it a very ethereal feel to this gorgeous area.

Sir! This is almost cinematic. In my opinion this could not be better. Change NOTHING.
