Whew! Back from a 4-day camping trip in the Black Hills :phew: All three nights, we had to weather storms in our tents. Luckily, mine held up and kept us dry =D Tried chasing storms every day, but every time we got to a storm, it would collapse. They only wanted to seem to fire at night, simultaneously ruining our chances to shoot stars and to get sleep. On our last night there, we did have a brief window of clear skies which allowed me to capture this image of the milky way :) Unfortunately, this spectacular view didn't last long! The starry night sky was soon washed away by an outflow-dominant storm rolling over the high terrain :nod:
I usually put borders on my images, but putting a boundary above the endless limits of the night sky simply felt like a crime. So, this one will remain open and un-bordered :P
