I have done quite a few images with Milky Way reflections lately, but this one beats them all.

It was taken at Pass Lake in the beautiful Uintas Mountains in Utah.

I stopped at this spot to take a picknick for lunch and immediately knew that I had to come here for a night shooting. Therefore, I drove back into the Uintas the same evening.

The night turned out to be perfectly clear and calm during the first hours after astronomical dusk, so that I was able to capture this perfect reflection.

I lit the trees on the other side of the lake with two LED lights using the Low Level Lighting method.
