Orion's Barn

A classic old barn nestled into the rolling hills of the Palouse region near Spokane, Washington. Orion is visible half way up to the right of the Milky Way. Look for the three prominent stars that make up Orion's belt. The triangle on the side of the barn matches the lower triangle that makes up the Orion constellation, thus "Orion's Barn." Jupiter is the bright light at the upper left. I used the headlight of my car, covered by a pillowcase, to illuminate the foreground, and a long exposure to reveal the details of the starry sky.
