The Milky Way in Colorado

28/366: The Forest at Night

To some the forest at night can be dark and scary, but for someone trying photography the Milky Way, stars and far away galaxies – this is a dream come true.  This photograph was taken in San Juan National Forest Colorado a little after sunset.  I had been photographing the other direction to capture the best and brightest part of the Milky Way; however, when I was turning to leave I noticed this beautiful silhouette of the forest which included parts of the Milky Way and stars and had to get one more shot! Enjoy.
