Default Light painting/Milky Way

I wanted to try another photo shoot here plus arrive a little earlier to catch the moon setting over the Rocky Mountains. I also toned down the light painting by adding more diffuser to my lighting.

5d Mark II, ISO 4000 - 5000, shutter from 10 seconds to 30 seconds, 24 - 70mm @ 2.8

Awesome! In my neck of the woods the only way to see that many stars is if someone hits you in the head!
Number two really makes you wonder if we are alone.
Great work Kevin!

Thanks Shadokachr and Caryl. The Milky Way is spectacular to see. If you've never seen it, is it because you don't get this view down there or you haven't made time to look for it?

You need to drive outside the city at least a good half hour to get away from the light pollution plus go when there is no moon and wait till around midnight. The bright band of starrs is the Milky Way.

Last time I saw a sky so full of stars was in January of 02 in southern Afghanistan.
