Fire Wave Panorama (photo composite)

Nevada, USA

2017 March 24


From the photographer: "The night time scene shows the Fire Wave, a petrified multi-layered sandstone formation with the Milky Way rising up in the background. The scene however is illuminated by the intense lights of Las Vegas, NV over 50 miles (80km) away and reflected into the valley by high scattered clouds. The night sky has become more blue because of the increasing light dome of Las Vegas and nearby industrial sites that are scattered along the Interstate 15. Dark sites such as the Valley of Fire are increasing becoming brighter as the encroachment of lights from Las Vegas increases."
