Lassen National Forest, California
This photo was taken during a night of work for the US Forest Service as a Spotted Owl Research Technician. One of my favorite parts of the job was the opportunity to be underneath some incredibly dark skies every night, so one night I used a flashlight to paint a picture of my "office."
Contrast, slight darkening of some small areas, noise reduction, sharpening, saturation, license plate blurred at my boss's request
