15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Black Hills Gold

I was backcountry camping in the Black Hills for the first time ever and one of the spots I was most excited to visit was the Cathedral Spires along the Needles Highway. After consulting an app on my phone I saw that the Milky Way would pass behind the spires around midnight and had to capture the shot. It was a bit colder than expected!
