Summit Sunrise #2

mk-ridge-sunrise1

I took this image about a year and a half ago. I was still shooting Jpegs then rather than RAW, so you can see a bit of banding in the sky – the tonal range in jpegs is much more compressed compared to what you can achieve with RAW. I like the way the silhouette worked out.

On the ridge you can see (left-to-right): IRTF, CFHT, Gemini, UH88, UKIRT and the little blip of the old 24-inch telescope. If you click on the image you’ll see that there’s quite a bit of detail present. You can see the guard rails on the road to the left of the IRTF and the weather tower between CFHT and Gemini.

I think this might turn into a series…
