Description

Hiking through the desert at night, we saw the Milky Way rise to prominence in the sky - set against the backdrop of the hills in Red Rock Canyon seemed like the perfect place to stop and take it in. I exposed the photograph for 15 seconds on a higher ISO to make sure the stars were sharp, and used a lamp to light up the base of the rock formation. The hills in the background were lit by a stranger driving by with his headlights on! All in all, the elements came together in this image depicting how small we are compared to our immediate and planetary surroundings.
