Default Are We Alone?

This is an abandoned grain elevator in the ghost town of Dorothy, Alberta, Canada.

The grain elevator is lit up by flash light.

In the dramatic capture above, the abandoned grain elevator does its final job well; leading the observer to the stars, like grains of sand, scattered across the night sky...

This is great, Kevin.

Lovely positioning of the old grain elevator leading the eye up to the Milky Way sky!

Cool. Very nostalgic feeling.

Very cool shot, showing the dust lanes obscuring the center of the galaxy. In urban areas, we never see what the Kung call "the backbone of the night."

Thanks for showing us.
