A Notable Photo of the 2015 International Earth & Sky Photo Contest
From the photographer: "Beams from the setting Moon cast shadows from Greater Caucasus Range on the mountain plateau where clouds float. Our amazing camp is above them, at the height of 2700 meters, on a spur of rocky ridge, on the Kanzhol plateau. The Milky Way begins appearing in even light directly over the Elbrus mountain. Panorama from two horizontal shots."
