Milky Way above Rattlesnake Canyon
Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness, Colorado, 2013
I went to this area one night in October 2013 with a completely different image in mind. As it turned out, the topography and the position of the stars this time of year did not align, forcing me to imagine other possibilities. The result here is better than what I originally had in mind, though the basic concept is the same: illuminated sandstone, a brilliant night sky, and complementary curves.
