From The Canyons To The Stars

Anton Jankovoy’s photo (click for a much bigger view) from the Mardi Khola valley, Nepal. The specs, 30 sec, f/1.6, ISO 2500, are just the beginning of what it takes to get a shot like this. Climbing up to 8000 meters above sea level might have something to do with it, too.

The photographer notes that 1 in 5 people don’t see the Milky Way. Living less than 15 miles from Manhattan, I count myself among those unfortunates. The last time was when we were in Yosemite a few years ago.

Thx to Bad Astronomy.
