VIEW ON BLACK PLEASE
There are very few sights that I truly enjoy more then a beautiful night sky. Every once in a while, our planets; mother nature comes together with the universe, creating an almost unreal scene of beauty. Sometimes these scenes are hard to hunt for in the darkness of the night, yet some scenes do not need to be searched for. Some landscapes just make themselves visible. This image was taken in Santa Ynez, California near the base of Figueroa Mountain. The skies there are completely undervalued and stars are extremely visible, as long as you are away from the town.
I have been experimenting with new ways of processing Milky Way images, and I am super excited about where these techniques are going to take my image. This is a reprocess of my image "Nature Speaks" http://500px.com/photo/40901296.
