The sky is a 4 shot portrait orientation panorama to get the high sky and mountains and the complete milky way length. Shot about 2am in the absolute silence of the night in death Valley NP. The bright lights are from the city of Pahrump, about 50 miles away. The foreground is composited in and taken from a day shot of Badwater Basin several days prior. This was first time I spent most of the night alone in the desert shooting the stars and experiencing the magic of the desert night.
