The Cosmic Chariot

I snagged this just as the galactic core was making its way thru the middle of this old carriage axle. It was a spooky dark night in the desert, out there by yourself is a trip cause you can feel that you’re not by yourself. I had scouted this out earlier when it was light out and after sleeping in my truck for a few hours to let the moon set I raced over here set up some lighting for the foreground and started snapping away, I knew I would only have a short time that the Milky Way would align well between the wagon wheels. On the first few exposures I saw the green sky and all of the airglow and knew this would turn out to be one of my favorites images to date!
