The night sky is far more incredible than we often give it credit for; in fact it’s more breathtaking than the naked eye can see on its own. Kansas-based photographer David Lane spent four months taking images of the Milky Way extending over Yellowstone Park. As a result his images capture the true beauty of the Milky Way galaxy in its glittering splendor, replicating a stunning nighttime rainbow.
Night photography is a tricky task that requires some technical skills. The night sky is never 100% dark thanks to the faint glow of lights given off by our planetary atmosphere. Lane adjusted the airglow saturation, increasing it by 10%. For some photos he combined as many as 16 shots to get the perfect picture.
