The unique Landscape photo was captured at the peak of the rock formation/petroglyph cave in Pilar New Mexico. The image reveals the Rio Grande River (in the background) winding up into the Rio Grande Gorge Canyon with the Milky Way Galaxy emblazoned against a radiant night sky, with the super full Moon (3D graphics) and meteors racing across. The night time landscape is brilliant against the Moon’s illumination in this remarkable Enchanted Land!
