Milky Way and the Mountains

This shot was about as impromptu as it gets.  The boys, my wife and myself spent an evening under the Colorado sky enjoying a movie set against the Rockies next to a burning fire pit.  Copper Mountain hosted an outdoor movie under the stars and it was awesome.  On the way back to the cabin, the boys quickly tuckered out in the back seat and I managed to convince my wife into a quick stop for just enough time to grab this image.  Was planning on heading back out after dropping the family off but the bed and a soft pillow were just too convincing!

  2. From one Scott to another, I would love to know the camera settings and such. I’m heading to the Great Smoky Mountains in a month and would like to try something like this as well. Love the capture, you did a great job with it!
