Description

In early to mid spring the Milky Way makes its way into the southeastern sky in Texas in the early morning hours. I captured this view in two exposures, one for the foreground and one for the sky. The view of Casa Grande was captured right after sunset when there was still a bit of afterglow in the western sky, and the Milky Way was exposed the following morning at 4:00 am. The two photos were combined in Photoshop.
