A man from the Gujurat region of India by way of the Bay Area contemplates Delicate Arch underneath the amazing Milky Way, rising from the southeast and drifting right toward the south. If you stay still enough, I swear you can actually perceive the stars drifting, a special stillness that we don’t often have opportunity to experience. The glow beneath the arch is a light dome, but from where, I’m not certain, but I believe the camera is facing more or less southeast.

African Elephant Surveys The Milky Way”
Astronomer Dennis Mammana and I shot some night sky photos of Ricardo Breceda’s amazing metal dinosaur sculptures on 16 June 2014. The following night, I went out again, this time, picking an area that was not so windy, probably something we should have done the night before. The African elephant sculptures are located in the northern part of Borrego Springs, and I have not photographed these particular ones before.

I hit this with a bit of light painting from my head lamp, just to make the image pop, although I did take some silhouettes as well. But I think I like this light painted one better.
