Through a window and up to the night sky

A window to the night sky - 2013 © Christopher Martin

We stayed at Lake Louise a couple of weeks ago and I set up to take some photographs from my room of the ice sculptures lit up around the front lawn of the Chateau.  It was then I noticed the stars and how wonderfully bright they were.  With the reflection of lights from below there was a lot of distortion, refraction and general murk to wrestle with.  The hazy arcs above the mountain are one of the interesting effects from the lamps around the pathways.  I worked away for a little while and liked this somewhat abstract image of Mount Whyte under the night sky.
