Toadstool and the Milky Way
Bisti Wilderness, New Mexico, 2014
I scouted this area of "wild mushrooms" during daylight hours before heading out here the following night. Finding the right place in a landscape with few landmarks and no trails was a challenge. This rock in particular was the one that convinced me I was in the right place. This image, like many of my night-sky images, is actually two photos: one for the foreground, and one for the stars.
