The night sky is fascinating in so many ways. During my stay in the Swiss Alps, the sky was full of stars and the Milky Way much stronger than in Finland. In the first nights I stood outside and gazed at the stars. So much to take in, overwhelming.
But then it was time to take my gear and finally, finally get some night photos there. After all, this was the first time to be there since I started to take photography more serious.
For this photo I went to Rossiniere in the canton of Vaud, at the shores of Lac du Vernex. A day earlier I scouted out several places and ended up here for the better part of the night.
Notice the bright star above the Milky Way? That is Vega, the second brightest star of the Northern celestical hemisphere. Looking downwards through just at the edge of the Milky Way sits another star. That is Altair, ranking at number twelve. Ready for one more? Now let’s follow the Milky Way up to West and there is Deneb right in the Milky Way.
Connect the three and we will have the so-called summer triangle.
Do you like to look at the stars? Or is it too bright where you live? I’d be curious to know 🙂
