Stony Spectator – Desert Foreground

I took this Milky Way panorama in a VERY remote place in northeren Arizona.

The drive to this place was exremely difficult and required a high clearance 4WD. It was the worst piece of driving I ever did, involving hard to follow tracks, deep sand and ditches and driving in a wash for several miles.

After shooting my nightscapes, I spent a restless night, because I was worriedthat I might not be able to make it back into civilisation without incidents the next day. I finally made it back, but I damaged my aft bumper on the way out.

Was it worth it? Definately!
