Photographer David Kingham originally set out to Mount Chapin in Rocky Mountains National Park to document the Taurid meteor shower, but instead, he came home with this jaw-dropping vertical panorama featuring not one, but two galaxies!
Taken with an 85mm/f1.4 Rokinon lens, this astrophotograph is actually a composite of 16 different images.
Want to learn how to capture shots like this? Kingham teaches immersive, on-location night photography workshops in Death Valley, Grand Teton and Arches national parks.
