What do you do after shooting the milky way in the early morning?
Wait for the sun to rise, of course!
Friday morning after making images of the galaxy, I headed up to Colorado State University's mountain campus just to see what I could see. It was too dark to photograph landscapes, but too light to shoot anymore stars, so I went up hill.
When I got to the campus, the gates were locked for the season, but the view was incredible. I shot around an old split rail fence that had seen better days, but worked out ok for a foreground interest. And then, for just a few moments before the sun actually hit the peaks, the sky above them lit up pink.
That's Fall Mountain in the background and if you look close, you can see pieces of the CSU ropes course hidden in the forest. I'm going to have to come back in the spring when the gate is open. Absolutely gorgeous up there.
And now I'm going to go watch Black Panther with my wife.
Shot with Sony alpha a6300.
