After arriving to hotel at the base of Davis Mountains, at 1:00am, I was eager to get out and photography the Milky Way in this incredibly dark sky area.
This image was the first one I took at Davis Mountains, just outside the State Park area. When I stopped to shoot I had no idea the gate was there. It wasn't until a few moments later, after my first few test shots, that I realized it's presence and incorporated it into the image.
If only we could open the gate and walk right into the Milky Way!
