Milky Way over Alamosa

There were very few places in Colorado or Wyoming that were reported as being clear for the Persiad Meteor Shower. Sand Dunes National Monument was one of them. I left home with just enough time to get there and scout out a location to shoot from, which ended up being high in the dunes. From my location there was only one dune higher that I could see and I had great views towards Alamosa and back towards Mt. Blanca.

This shot doesn't have any meteors in it, but I loved how the low cloud cover lit up Alamosa while still blocking enough light to reveal the Milky Way.
