Today I discovered a truly astounding picture of the Milky Way. It rivals the work of Axel Mellinger, and that's extremely high praise coming from me. We have a composite picture of Mr. Mellinger's work hanging in our office. I consider it one of the most astounding photographs ever take, on any topic.
The Mily Way over Monument Valley shot, in my opion, rivals any picture of the Milk
Instead of posting the actual picture, I'm going to link to it. Partly this is due to bandwidth concerns, but mostly due to copyright issues. Rather than confuse anyone as to the ownership of the image, you can go to the oringinal site and view it for yourself.
Trust me, it's well worth the effort.
