If you were to tell me a few months ago that I would have captures beautiful photos of incredible astrophotography, I wouldn’t have believed it.

I went up to Craters of the Moon National Park and took photos of incredible astrophotography. These photos of the milky way with the tens of thousands of stars I could see are both inspiring and breath-taking. I couldn’t believe how amazing and beautiful the night sky was at Craters of the Moon.

Craters of the Moon is one of the best places in the world for astrophotography, and the best in Idaho. There, the cloud coverage is minimal if any and the light pollution from nearby towns and cities is almost non-existent since the closest city is almost 100 miles away. I drove about 2 hours to get there, and it was worth it.

I took these photos as part of a project for my Comm 316 Professional Imaging class at Brigham Young University Idaho. My personal Style Project was taking astrophotography and light painting astrophotography and printing a 14 page magazine to showcase the photos. I will post about the magazine later this week.

These photos are breathtaking reminders of the vastness of the universe and the awe inspiring beauty of it.
