Waterton Lakes Night Panorama2 (Aug 31, 2013).jpg
A 5-section panorama of Waterton Lakes National Park, around Upper Waterton Lake, looking south from the promontory site of the Prince of Wales Hotel, overlooking the townsite on a dark moonless night, August 31, 2013. Each frame is a 30 second exposure with the 24mm lens at f/2.5 and Canon 5D MkII at ISO 2500. Stitched in Photoshop. If there was a case for making Waterton a Dark Sky Preserve, this is it. Unshielded lights illuminate the entire valley and make it impossible to see the stars and Milky Way from the town and Hotel site.
