25th place
This photo was taken a little after 11 PM at the eastern edge of the Canadian Rockies near Banff National Park. The sky was finally clear after all the forest fire smoke from the summer and the moon would not rise for a few hours. Jupiter was shining bright low on the southern horizon as an extra treat on this lovely warm and darn evening.
