The Milky Way galaxy shines above the towering cliffs of the Grand Canyon on a clear crisp fall evening. A hint of light pollution from Las Vegas, and the other towns up above the rim, illuminates the distant horizon.
Photography Tip: To capture the Milky Way at its full glory you need five things. 1. A place with minimal light pollution. 2. A night with very little moonlight. 3. A very wide aperture and a digital camera that can shoot clean images even at very high ISO settings. 4. A good sturdy tripod. 5. Good raw file processing software and skills.
That and a bit of luck are all it takes to make photos like this one. Now go outside and shoot away!
