13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

My father was raised in Datil, New Mexico. The area is flat, cold, with gorgeous starry nights. My dad left his truck light on which gives this image the intense orange on the bottom. This orange helps contrasts the darkness of the sky. My father helped find me this area to photograph. It is one of my favorite moments I've had with him in my lifetime.
