Starry Night at Mount Assiniboine

Starry Night at Mount Assiniboine

This image was taken on 21 September 2012, in Mount Assiniboine, Canadian Rockies. A dramatic sky appeared over Mount Assiniboine: after sunset, the rising moon was hidden behind Mount Sunburst while its light was burst from the peak, and moving clouds crossed the starry sky and formed such magic patterns.

Others comments on this image (from Photo Net):

"A superb night image Yan! Unless I miss my guess you shot this from the Nub? Must have been a fun trip down from the Nub in the dark! That's dedication to the art! The post processing is superbly done! Congratulations on an outstanding image Yan.
All the best,
Neil"
