The milky way over Norway's and Northern Europes highest mountain -Galdhøpiggen 2469m/8100ft. I had to spend the night at 2037 meters above sea level to capture this image. At such high altitude, I felt fairly exposed for rapid weather changes, so I had to really step out of my comfort zone and overcome a bit of fear to capture this image. When I planned this shot, I had a hypothesis that the higher you go and the colder it gets, the Milky Way would appear much brighter and clearer. I found this to be true. I’ve never seen the Milky Way like this before. This night is definetely a memory that will stay in my mind forever. I stacked 21 images with Starry LandscapeStacker to reduce the noise.
