I spent three nights camping at White mountains two weeks ago. . This one was taken at Patriarch Grove. The temperature dropped to 42F and I wasn't prepared. Anyway this is one of the shots from the trip.
Exif is intact.
Tracker was used for the sky and blended with the foreground for the final image.
Beautiful image Harsha, I love everything about it.
For me it's a perfect blend with just the right amount of light on the pine and the Milky Way is exposed really well.
I even like the glow of the light dome at the horizon... and your choice of composition is excellent.
