Spectacular nightscape of Brule Lake, Minnesota by J Randall Updegrove. Living on the metropolitan east coast, I am always astounded by the night sky whenever I travel to a place with true nighttime darkness. There is virtually no light pollution in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota and on a clear night the stars fill the sky completely down to the horizon line. This image captures the surreal calm and clarity we experienced for almost the entire week we were there. This is the moment when the stars are literally appearing by the thousands per minute. Excellent landscape work!
