Ancient Scene

Milky Way display over a trio of tufa towers in Trona Pinnacles, a National Natural Landmark in the Searles Lake Basin of the California Desert Conservation Area. The unusual landscape consists of more than 500 tufa spires, some as high as 140 feet, rising from the bed of the lake basin.

EF 16-35mm @ 29mm; F/2.8 @ 20 sec, ISO 3200

Lovely, Bob. I have yet to try night photography (I like to sleep at that time)! Love the way you included the towers.

Thank you, Shirley. I believe a strong foreground in night-sky images is as important as it is for other genre.
