A Stand Up Paddleboarder glimpses a shooting star while enjoying the Milky Way from Sun Valley, Idaho. To light the water, I stuffed remotely-triggered flashes into dry bags & strapped them to the underside of the paddleboard. I then leveraged the early light of the moon to bring the landscape & the iconic ski mountain to life. The paddler was a ninja at standing still on the board for the long exposure, despite the wind & numb feet. I had the warmer duty of shooting from atop an ant hill & fending off sprinklers & a pair of curious raccoons bent on climbing my tripod. Hope you enjoy the result!
