Vincent Brady captured this image at Logan’s Pass in Glacier National Park, in the northern part of the U.S. state of Montana, on the Canada–United States border. He wrote:

I usually stray away from black-and-white photos, never thought one of my star trail photos looked better in black and white, but this one was just asking for it. Plus, out west in the mountains, it’s nice to represent for the one and only Ansel Adams! Also trying out a new trick with the stars fading out on both ends and being solid in the center. Makes for a little more painterly effect in the sky. Had a blast checking out Glacier Park for the first time and scoping out spots to do a ‘strail.’ Definitely want to go back!

What are star trails?
