So many stars...
Oct 14, 2013

I spent the weekend in west Texas shooting Caprock Canyon during the day and night...and while the vistas were amazing during the day it was the night sky that made my jaw drop. This photo was taken near Lake MacKenzie, Texas. Lake Mackenzie is located in Briscoe County, Texas 12 miles northwest of Silverton and 27 miles east of Tulia, pretty much in the middle of nowhere but just what I was looking for.  The night sky was amazing and the rock formations brought to mind photos I have seen of Monument Valley.  I did not expect to see this in Texas.  The only illumination was by a very bright the half moon.  The rocks are so red they almost don't look real.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
