Description

Traveling through the valleys of Saint Catherine at day and capturing the majestic Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex at night was my routine in the last few nights.
I was lucky getting few of them while capturing the beautiful bortle 1 night sky of Egypt. This image was shot using my beloved portable setup with no complications just a tracker, stock dslr, 135mm lens, and most importantly patience.
Location: Dar Eid - Saini - Egypt.
