The story behind the photo: Dad wanted to re-create the magical night skies he experienced on one of his first pack trips into the mountains. He already had a photograph of his guide hobbling the horses for the night.
He just needed to shoot a photo of the stars. He found the perfect, dark spot in West Texas where he captured the colorful Milky Way. Back at the studio, he blended the two photos together in Photoshop create this celestial masterpiece.
