We thought it a great idea to reach out to our talented Goldpaint Photography Alumni and ask them to send us their favorite image from 2016! After traveling the country and teaching full workshops, we found that our students captured some VERY impressive and inspiring images this year. Their artistry helps feed our passion and desire to promote the preservation of our disappearing night skies. They too, were inspired to get out there and explore some magical places, often conquering their own fears of the dark to capture its mystery and beauty.
