The rising moon and one of the impressive sculptures scattered around the desert community of Borrego Springs, California. With a summertime population of far less than 3,000 and surrounded by a thousand square miles of the Anza-Borrego Desert, the community doesn't produce much light pollution and enjoys one of the darkest skies in Southern California. From the photographer: "This is one of dozens of metal sculptures created by Ricardo Breceda. Despite it being an 88%-illuminated gibbous moon that night, the Milky Way continued to shine nicely overhead."
