The last weeks we stayed in Idaho and Wyoming to visit the National Parks Grand Teton and Yellowstone. My first image of the journey shows the Milky Way across Teton Valley. The first time I saw the dark and starry nights in Teton Valley the wish came to take a picture of the Milky Way. In the first hours of the night the center of the Milky Way was visible. So I prepared my camera, put it on a tripod and went outside into the garden.
The center of the Milky Way should be visible close to the horizon. So I decided to arrange the trees of the near road into my composition. At first I was angry, that during my first exposure a car drove through my image. But after review of the images it was the best image — the illuminated trees give a good contrast to the night sky.
