Thank you to our friend Lars Leber for sharing his photo. Lars wrote:
This is a pond at the top of Independence Pass in between Aspen and Buena Vista. This panorama consists of 10 photos (two rows of five vertical photos each) and you can see the Milky Way as well as the setting moon reflecting in the pond.
My wife’s tripod is on the left edge of the photo; somebody just happened to park on the right edge of the photo while I was taking this panorama.
Feel free to like, share, or comment.
Thank you for looking and for liking Lars Leber Photography!
