Image Details:

They say the stars are guide for those who are travelers. That night at Death Valley National Park, I found myself in the middle of strange landscape, something very weird yet so prodigious. There was hardly any light. I could imagine the shapes and size through the blaze of shadows. Deep troughs and high crests of rock formation. Guided by the star light, I stood on the edge of one of the mudstone, and watched the many stars of our Milky Way Galaxy. And in the cosmic comfort, I made this image.
