    Most of my shots don't require too much planning. This one however was weeks of planning and waiting for cooperative weather, and after pulling it off successfully at 3:15am in the late summer, I can happily say this is my best shot I've taken this year.

    Image Time: 3:15 AM. Good photographs are often dependent on interesting juxtapositions - and in this image, a specific moment in time was required for the Milky Way to align beautifully with the waterfall. In this fantastic picture, the stars seem to spill out of the sky - becoming a celestial waterfall.
