This photo was taken at about 10,000 feet in the dead of night near Rock Creek Lake, Bishop CA.
Relying solely on the natural light emitting from a small campfire, I set my exposure to 15 seconds and kept my fingers crossed. Although the Milky Way isn't out, which I was hoping it was... the colors and visuals that appeared in the photo once it had taken completely blew me away.
I am very happy with the details and colors in both the sky the pine tree. Overall this photo is one of my favorites and really captures the excitement of night photography and the beauty that this area holds, even when it's completely dark outside.
