I have been planning this shot for over year. I love the iconic Mesa Arch and thought it would be amazing to shoot this national landmark with the Milky Way over the arch. Ryan Plakonouris helped me utilized low level lighting from both sides and a third light under the arch and then we waited for the perfect moment when the Milky Way approximated the gentle curve of Mesa Arch. This moment occurred around 3 am last night and I was in awe as I captured this beautiful scene. If you make a donation to WorldPix we will send you a copy of this print or any other that you choose and all the money will go back to Sunshine Acres a Children's Home in Mesa, AZ. I'm very thankful that I was able to capture this image while raising money for a great cause.
