Description

Hagerman Fossil Beds is a national monument SW of Hagerman, ID. As a member of the Magic Valley Astronomical Society (MVAS), our group conducts star parties there on a regular basis. And on this particular night, the Milky Way displayed its colors very nicely.

I shot several light frames at ISO 1600, 18 secs each, at f/2 with my Rokinon 16mm lens on a Canon 70D. Manually selected my favorite and processed it in Lightroom and Photoshop.
