"Retreating Clouds"

One of my first Milky Way shots, and possibly one of the best I'll ever capture. Why? I'd packed up my gear, preparing to turn in for the night, when I noticed the cloud movement. As it had been misting for hours, I surprised myself with the positive feeling that came over me. Jumping out of the car, and grabbing the gear once more had me set up to capture the clouds, Milky Way and the shape of the barn just as the lights of Alamogordo illuminated the clouds with a golden glow. Once again, premonition can play a valuable role in capturing memorable images.
