Death Valley has some of the darkest night skies I have ever seen. It was an awesome experience to stand on top of the dunes and gaze at the galaxy above. This is a single exposure 6 minute image of the stars above the Ibex Dunes. I wanted to go longer on the exposure but even though the sky was dark there was quite a bit of air traffic. I hope you enjoy....... Specs are f/2, 375 seconds ISO-280 at 24mm
