Top 10 Image Review – “Align”
Top 10 Review – “Align”
I’m not sure how this will look as a low-res image but we’ll try. There are faint stars visible in this image and gave this image its title, “Align”.
This image was from high up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California near 12,000 ft. I camped here and the next morning had one of the best experiences of my life summiting Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the Lower 48. The skyline is as jagged as it gets and the sun was setting behind the peaks. With few clouds, my hopes of capturing an incredible sunset fizzled but these few wispy clouds blew over at the last light of day. This was at the exact moment a few stars began to shine and I watched until they all aligned before clicking the shutter.
There are plenty of other photos of the full Milky Way and plenty of photographers out there showcasing this. These subtle scenes of one star or a few stars aligned speak just as loud to me and draw me into the scene.
I hope you enjoy this image and it brings you the same calming, inspiration it brings me. The day following this was one of the best days of my life:)
