Cycloidal Archway

From the photographer: "A Cycloid is the curve traced by a point on the rim of a circular wheel as the wheel rolls along a straight line without slipping. Such mathematical shapes can be found in nature and is seen in the Milky Way arch.
This image was captured at Pot Alley Beach in Kalbarri, Western Australia at around midnight on a cold winter night of August. This is a panorama consisting of 40 frames with each frame being 20 seconds long. The entire image took about 20 minutes to capture.
The red rocks, jagged cliffs and winding gorges will take ones breath away by day. But as the sun sets and the stars revealed themselves, one would be treated to some of the best skies ever seen."
Technical details: 40 frame panorama, Nikon D750, Sigma Art 20mm f1.4 @ f2, ISO3200, 20 seconds
