Saskatchewan was under a layer of heavy rime ice and snow after several days of fog. It isn’t often that the flat prairie looks so breathtaking so I tried to take advantage. The temperature dipped to below -20 celcius and as I photographed a panorama close to this spot, I could begin to feel it in my fingers and toes. Unfortunately for my fingers and toes, as my camera finished the panorama to the west I noted a bank of fog and moisture along the horizon that was turning the light pollution from Regina into a very attractive glow. Something I just had to shoot, especially considering the position of the milky way core. Once my panorama wrapped up I set up my gear about 20 feet to the north and shot this scene. One benefit of the fog/moisture that was in the distance was the all natural amplified star glow effect.
