A Beehive Basin Universe

  • Sale
  • $ 55


On a clear, windless night high in Montana's Spanish Peaks, the Milky Way arcs over Beehive Basin and is reflected in a small lake. This image in the combination of 47 pictures taken over several hours without ever moving my tripod. Some exposures used my Skywatcher star tracker, enabling shutter times in excess of three minutes, while others were "untracked" and much shorter. After many hours of editing, the result is a view of our home galaxy above a tiny piece of Montana wilderness. 

Pure Art Printers in Saint George, UT, is doing my night sky photo printing now, and their proprietary Pure Metal Paper is second to none for these images. The colors pop and the stars look amazing. I'm offering this here on their paper ready for you to have framed or on their aluminum ready to hang. 

I am also offering the option of a Lightbox created by Chicago's Artmill. The photo is boxed in front of soft, enclosed LED lights, bringing out its wide range of light. This is a ready-to-hang option and requires only a 110 outlet.

Many buying options are listed below, but if you don't see what you're looking for, don't hesitate to ask.
