    I’ve always wanted to see places like this down south and out west, the cultures and landscapes always calling me. This is a great capture, great place, the composition and layers of depth and shape, light and shade are wonderful.

    superb depth using existing light and fill flash. i like the stars as pinpoints, but wonder what this would be like if the stars were trails? very well done.
