"Imperial Galaxy"

Here is an experimental image I tried a few night ago at Fonts Point. The idea was to create a very wide vertical image where the Milky Way appears extremely thin and long in the frame. I used my 14 mm lens and took 12 horizontal frames up and down. The moon has already set at Fonts Point and the Milky Way was shining its true colors. Overlooking the Badlands from this spot was just incredible. It did however, feel pretty uncomfortable standing on the edge of a sheer cliff. The glow on the horizon is caused by light pollution in Calexico, El Centro and Mexicali.
