While on a fifty mile backpacking trip from Jackson to Yellowstone Lake, we camped one night near the mouth of Trapper Creek. In the dark I set up the camera on a tripod facing north to Colter Peak and Turret Peak. During the ten minute exposure, I walked in front of the camera going from one tent to the next and illuminated each with a small hand-held flash by firing the flash behind each tent and toward the camera. The clouds blurred as they blew across the sky, the stars appeared to move, and the landscape was lit by a three-quarter waxing moon.
