I've never shared this photo because it bothers me how much noise is in it. i wish i had owned a better camera at the time, or adjusted my settings a little differently.
but there are so many things about this photo that i absolutely love—the glassy lake, the purple and blue sky colors blending together, the big dipper outshining the rest of the stars, the last remnants of sunlight on the mountains—but most of all the memory of the moment i spent shooting it. i could never recreate it if i tried.
so here's a photo that i love, and i don't care how imperfect it is. perfection is boring anyway. ;)
