Image of the

The Milky Way Galaxy as seen from
the south rim of Grand Canyon National Park on May 13, 2011.
The skies were exceptional clear (as noted by the helicopter pilot in a
flight I took over the canyon
some five hours later when he stated, "...we only see skies this
clear once a year!") for this 4 AM
photograph taken in a dark parking lot next to Yavapai
Point. This image was taken with a Canon
EOS 1Ds Mark III, using a 24mm lens set at f/1.8 for
15 seconds on a fixed tripod.
