Nevada 150 Photo Contest Winner
"On September 28th, my wife and I, as serious amateur photographers, wanted to visit what we call "Little Finland near Whitney Pockets. We camped at Whitney Pockets with our camping trailer so that we would be close to Little Finland for an early start the next morning. We wanted to photograph some stars and our campfire lit up the rock formations surrounding the camp site creating a unique look and feel. I wanted to capture the Milky Way and the feeling of desert solitude. My photo is the one of the Milky Way over a Whitney Pockets camp spot."
