If you live anywhere near a city, you'll be lucky to see a single star in the night sky. Luckily for us, there are people like Knate Myers to capture the beauty of the night sky. Knate is a self-taught photographer living in Albuquerque,NM who only recently discovered timelapse and astro photography. It's a good thing he lives in the southwest. It allows him to capture the stars and sky away from the city lights, resulting in some beautiful shots.
If you like his photos, you can buy a calendar of them on Zazzle.
This is an absolutely amazing composite shot of a road leading into the Milky Way sky by Larry Landolfi. I love the contrast between dark the hilltops and the starry sky.
Here's his description:Taken in Ft. Davis, Texas ("the darkest spot in North America"). A composite of the summer Milky Way and a dirt road at the place I was staying. This photo is either #1 or #2 when you Google - Images- "Milky Way" or "The Milky Way"
