Rainier Nights

Evening at Sunrise Visitor Center in Mt. Rainier National Park. This was a bucket list shot for me and was so happy to get clear skies the one night I had to shoot this location. The image consist of a 30sec exposure during blue hour to allow for a lower iso (400) of the mountain and foreground. Then once the galaxy aligned over the mountain I used a star tracker to get a 120sec exposure at a slightly higher ISO (1250). Then blending the two in post along with overall adjustments rendered one of my favorite night shots of the 2020 season!
