It’s very compressed in this view. Please click on the photo to see it large. It really does look better!

The night before the WorldWide Photowalk I did a little night photography. The Milky Way shot I want still eludes me…one day I’ll get it!
The Moon was a bit too bright for this shot to come out the way I had envisioned it, but the color from the light pollution, the cloud formation, and the pine trees in silhouette made this shot for me.

This is a southwestern sky.
