Last week’s Instagram Challenge was “EARTH.” One of my winners was this beautiful photo from Sky Neary.
Sky reached out to let me know exactly how he captured/created this image-
I was on a last minute backpacking trip to Nevada, Utah, and Arizona area with a friend and traveling for a week. This photograph was created on the last day of our trip right outside Las Vegas. This landscape is in Red Rock Canyon National Park.
After taking the image I edited it in photoshop to turn day into night
Turn photograph from day to night:
and then blended a Milky Way photograph I took on the same trip
I ended with this.
I like to think that this is what it looks like if you were here at night.
