This is another image of the milky way as it came up over this old railroad bridge in the Texas Hill country.  We used some light painting to bring out the bridge so we did not overexpose the sky.  You can see the light pollution in the background from one of the near by cities. This shot took a while to find a location where we could get the a good shot of the galaxy with out too much light pollution.  We are also very excited to learn  that this image will be on the cover of the  January -February 2015 issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine.
