Milky Way shines over the Old Rock Church deep in the heart of Texas

I have been here three times before this and my fourth visit to St. Olaf Kirke popularly known as the Old Rock Church in Cranfills Gap, Texas proved to be special for what I was able to capture in near ideal conditions. This time even the wispy layers of clouds contributed to the intrigue of the scene in contrast to my previous visit when thick clouds blanketed the skies.
