16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Milky Way outlined by the Turret Arch

This past summer my friends and I realized we were going to be seniors in college and have never traveled. We immediately bought tickets to Utah so we could experience the beauty that such a state has to offer. Luckily the night we were there was a warm summer night with a new moon. I visited every Arch in Arches national park and the turret arch outlined the milky way perfectly. Hence the shot!
