    Milky Way & Mobius Arch


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CatsEye and another photographer friend took a trip to the Mobius Arch in Alabama Hills, California, on July 27. While there they posed under the arch and looked for the Milky Way in the sky. She says: 'This will always be one of my fondest photographic moments. When we arrived in the afternoon the light was amazing, when the stars came out they were incredible ... But most of all I was humbled and renewed by nature and the place I'm so happy to call my home, the Eastern Sierra Nevada.' This image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for February 11, 2014.

    On the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California there are no city lights, it is one of the best places for star gazing. Myself and a fellow photographer waited until about an hour after sundown to catch the milky way placed over Mobius Arch, one of the most spectacular arches in the Alabama Hills area, in Lone Pine, CA. In this image we "painted" the arch with light to make it visible in the dark.
