Night Sky Over Railroad Bridge

Night Sky Over Railroad Bridge  - This is vertical image of the milky way as it came up over this old railroad bridge in the Texas Hill country. The "Milky Way" can be seen as a hazy band of white light some 30 degrees wide arcing across the sky. The milkyway can be seen better at certain times of the year and we had planned this well in advance inorder to get the best shot.  The milkyway is the galaxy that our solar system is in and the tern milky has to do with the milky look which is really just a band of light that contains all the gallaxy, stars, planets, gas, dust, etc in the solar system. The Milky way is believed to contain 100-400 billion planets, and as much as 100 billion stars.  We used some light painting to bring out the bridge so we did not over expose the sky. You can see the light pollution in the background from one of the near by cities. The milkyway can be seen better at certain times of the year and we had planned this well in advance in order to get the best shot. After we came across thos old rail road bridge we waited till we could get the best night sky when the moon would not be up amd where we could get a better image of the galaxy with out too much light pollution. Well you can see we didn't get far enough away and the light pollution from the nearby towns showed up in the image.  Well as it turns out we found out that this image would make the cover of the January -February 2015 issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine as they were doing an article on light pollution.

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.
