Dark sky locations make such a difference when sky watching, and it looks like you made the most of your opportunity!

Love the shapes and colors, Dan. I can see this as an abstract as well as what it is. Amazing!

Thanks for the Editor pick, I really appreciate it. Astro is a crazy
hobby, you stay up all night, image 1 or maybe 2 things for 2 hours each..
Process for hours after and if you screw up alignment or focus the whole night is lost.... But fun stuff, so much photography is
Iphones and instagram these days, this is one aspect that is still available for photographers that phone technology wont catch up to anytime soon.
