I've done my fair share of photographing the Milky Way but never before had I seen it so beautifully on display than my last trip to Mono Lake back in September.

Oddly enough, the rim fire was still burning strong behind us in the mountains and eventually smoked us out.

I lit to the tufas with a small LED flashlight which really made the tufas in the background stand out as well. I felt like I was on another planet :-)
