The Shadow of Death

I really wanted to try out the Sony A7s for nightscapes, but due to the superbloom, the mesquite dunes were overrun with kids playing night games with flashlights. I tried opening my shutter several times in the hopes of catching a nice illuminated dune, rather than an overpowering flash of light, and finally snagged this just before the clouds rolled in to obscure the milky way. Sony A7s, 30 seconds, ISO 10,000, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 @ f/8.
