The night sky swirls above the old Lower Fox Creek schoolhouse at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, Kansas. This new National Park protects almost all that is left of the tallgrass eco-system that used to stretch across the middle of North America.

I shot this using a single 40 minute exposure with a little light painting to illuminate the old schoolhouse. I then used Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 to enhance my original capture.
