Lone Pillar

There are two main rows of Monument Rocks in this location, but on the southwest corner of the “park” is a lone standing structure reaching towards the heavens.  This pillar,if I remember correctly, is one of the taller chalk structures at this location.  As you’ll see, there are so many different ways that you can shoot these chalk pyramids.  We were up there for nearly four hours and I still want to get back up there and shoot some different looks and longer star trials.

In this shot, you can tell that the galactic core is already beginning to fade into the horizon.  Also, this shot is a little noisier than the last due to my settings.  Bumped the ISO up slightly higher for this one.
