The Alluvial Fan Falls in Rocky Mountain National Park looked like a great place to shoot a waterfall foreground under starry night skies. So on one of my night photography workshops in August with great conditions, I took my students to the falls. And with our timing at about 3 am, we saw the Milky Way running in an east-west configuration - something that worked especially well in this location.I wasn't completely happy with my images of the falls from the August workshop so on another workshop in September, I decided to give it another try with a little better composition. It worked well that I arrived with my class at the Alluvial Fan Falls parking lot after having seen several awesome locations for night photography and with most of the instructional portion completed, so a few students were very happy taking a bit of a break by just shooting from the parking lot. This may not sound like much of an option, but in this spot in RMNP with stunning skies above, the parking lot was actually a pretty neat place to shoot from! So a few students stayed in the parking lot shooting while the more adventurous and I made our way up to the falls.
