Photographs of mineral No. 52800: Quartz var. Smoky from Sawtooth Mountains, Custer County, Idaho
Online Mineral Museum Photographic Archive No. 52800: Quartz var. Smoky from Sawtooth Mountains, Custer County, Idaho.
As the moon makes it rise into the cool crisp night, smart animals take shelter from the cold, while silly photographers keep clicking away. .....Oh what a night! This was my first night out shooting in months and it was fantastic. With a moon 3 days from full and the fields of snow, everything was lit up beautifully. My only regret is that we didn't find any really great north facing comps so I never bothered with trying a star trail. Details: 17mm, :30sec, f/16, 6400 ISO
