Valley of Fire, Nevada

On a photo trip in late Summer we stopped by the Valley of Fire State Park in the State of Nevada near Lake Mead. This State Park has a variety of interesting geologic features. We spent the evening working this scene with the star filled sky and formations.

Gen. 1:1 "God created the heavens..." and all the stars in it.
Here the sky is shouting with joy over the birth of a baby some 2000 years ago.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Scott this is beautiful; the area you captured is the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, fantastic detail in the nebula and stars and like the sublte red light on the rocks. A+
