Description

This area of the Veil gets no love, but we feel that it’s well worthy of long-focal-length treatment. We’ve been unable to locate any tight shot of this area on Astrobin—or even through a google search. But our inability to find something is not evidence of its non-existence. I mean, I know my keys are around here somewhere. . . .
