A clear and dark night sky and the historic limestone kilns located in Grizzly Gulch, just outside of Helena, Montana. Limestone is frequently found in Central Montana. When baked, slaked and pulverized, it makes an excellent binding agent for cement, mortar and plaster. The material from the kilns was used to build the city of Helena beginning in the late 1860s. Kilns like these are scattered in areas surrounding Helena, many of which are relatively good condition. This is one 20 second long exposure, ISO 1600, with a Rokinon 14mm lens f3.5. While the shutter was open I raced around and "painted" the kilns with a flashlight so they would be viable in the photo
