Arch Rock and Milkyway Arch
Photographer: Shreenivasan Manievannan
Location: Joshua Tree National Park CA
Story: 
Milky way arched nicely over the Arch Rock in Joshua Tree National Park listening to Coyotes singing and supposedly Mountain Lion Purrs and Meows. This park is becoming so much light polluted with cities surrounding the park becoming bigger day by day. And as I realized the ambient light from the light pollution from the horizon was just enough to light the Arch Rock without any external light. In this age of us losing the dark very quickly hope we protect this beauty.
Digital Alterations: 
It is a stitched panorama taken at same time and same lighting conditions to capture the arch and the milky way completely in one photograph.
