Kings Canyon National Park, CA


The night fell at Upper Paradise Valley Campground. After the campfire died down, we crawled into our own tents. But it was time for astrophotography. It was quite chilly when I crawled back out with my gear. The trees were very tall, and I had to walk down to the creek to have open space, and yet I also wanted to include our tents in the shot, so I stuck around at our campsite. Loved the cozy feeling created by this dense forest while still having the ceiling wide open for the heavenly body.
