Monday night I spent a night camping in the Swiss Alps.

When I arraved at 6 p.m. at my remote campsite, the sky was covered with thick clouds that also blocked the view of the mountains around me.

I did not believe that there was the slightest chance to capture the Milky Way images I came for and prepared for a calm night in my cozy tent, but it was not to be.

Right at sunset the clouds miraculously parted and within an hour it was completely clear. I couldn’t believe my luck and happily started shooting the glorious scene. It was a very short 3 hours I finally spent in my tent, but I am not complaining…

Unfortunately I had no time to process the new images so far. Instead I am posting an image I took in March, that perfectly transports the mood I felt during my Monday night in the Million Star Hotel…
