7. Awesome shot by Bryony from West Thumb, Wyoming.

I was going to (attempt to) write something poetic and sciencey for this photo. But I have the song ‘catch a falling star and put it in your pocket’ distracting any vaguely intellectual thoughts going on Anyhoo, photo was taken in West thumb, using a 15 second exposure, ISO3200 and most importantly a f1.4. Camera used was a Canon 5DM3 and a wicked good Rokinon lens (f1.4) 24mm to be exact. ▲ Perhaps one day I will stop posting stars over geyser photos, but for the significant future, it’s unlikely. #sorrynotsorry ▲ #milkyway #Rokinon #reflection #fall #landscape #livefolk #letsgetlost #lifeofadventure #outdoors #usinterior #keepitreal #travelstoke #OptOutside #astrophotography #astronomy #space #stars #wild #wanderlust #yellowstone #night #geysers #geology #getoutside #wyoming #Merica #underthestars #teamcanon #TPSAffinity
