I took it over Memorial Day weekend. I shoot landscapes all the time but almost never go out with friends, I usually shoot by myself. I ran into an old PNNL friend and he said, ‘Let’s go out and take pictures tonight.’ We lucked out and there was someone down there with a bonfire. I backed up to not overpower with light. There were also people with flashlights. We were there at midnight and there were several photographers wandering around.”

The photo was taken with a 30-second exposure to light up the stars. Any longer than that the stars would have appeared as streaks instead of dots, he said.
