DescriptionSadly, the clouds are lit entirely by light pollution from the cities in the valley behind the mountains. This was shot on a night with just about zero moon light, so the illumination is coming from 80+ miles away and still packs quite a punch.
But, I love the color temperature of the light pollution against the deep blue of the stars.
