Celestial Bliss Milky Way

Marathon Texas 06-30-22

Celestial Bliss Milky Way - We were at our friends 20th anniversary party in Marathon Texas when I decided to capture the milky way galaxy on this pretty clear night. Marathon is considered the gate way to Big Bend National Park which is one of the gold certified international dark skies areas for star gazing. This area is perfect for capturing the night sky with the milky way standing out in the skys. A galaxy is a huge collection of gas, dust, and billions of stars and their solar systems, all held together by gravity and in our system it is the milky way. Big Bend park worked to get the certification of a international dark skies areas by changing out the lights in the park so light pollution is not a problem. Since we were so close to the park I drove out about five miles from Marathon toward the park and photographed the galaxy as the milkyway came up and stretched across the sky. However I did not drive into the park as we did last time we came to their ten year party as the border patrol flaged us as suspicious, when we drove into the park only a few miles into the park and returned to quickly. After they pulled us over they ran the dog around the car a few times and lets us go, whew. So decided to avoid that happening again by staying out of the park. In any case this area is perfect for star gazing as you can see millions of stars out here which we refer to this whole area as celestial bliss.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
