False Kiva in Canyonlands National Park

I just got some photos that I ordered from Wally Pacholka, an astro photographer who produces the most evocative images of the universe that I’ve ever seen.  Always including a terrestrial foreground, he manages to bring out the night sky against an intriguing foreground that connects our earth-bound vision with a love of the universe.  This image is a real photo, not a kluged-together photoshop project.

I’ve tried to shoot images like this, but somehow, it just doesn’t look the same.  Great work, Wally.
