BEST NEWCOMER – WINNER 2014
Chris Murphy, New Zealand
Rock formations in the Wairarapa district of New Zealand create a stark foreground and contrast to the dusty clouds dancing across the Milky Way. No light pollution and a clear, crisp night afforded the photographer a fantastic opportunity for this shot.
Nikon D600, 17mm f/2.8, 20 secs, f/2.8, ISO3200
