The Milky Way Over Yellowstone Will Take Your Breath Away

Reposted from: Bored Panda

universe-2Sometimes an artist can show you what the naked eye would miss. Kansas photographer David Lane spent four months photographing the Milky Way over Yellowstone Park, and the result is a stunning night-time rainbow.

Night photography always requires some technical know-how. One significant change that Lane made was adjusting airglow saturation. The night sky is never completely dark due to the faint emission of light by a planetary atmosphere; Lane increased its saturation by 10%. For certain photos he also combined up to 16 shots in order to get the image just right.

Some insight to what motives Lane can be found on his Facebook page’s comments. He writes, “Get away from the light drive out 20-30 miles out of town and look up on a clear dark night and you may see something that will forever change your life. This is what a galaxy looks like from the inside.”
