We are very pleased to announce that Eric Hines has placed 5th in the National Geographic Best Night-Sky Pictures of 2012.
From the National Geographic website:
A country road in Wyoming parallels the band of the Milky Way in a summertime shot by photographer Eric Hines. "Spending the nights under the stars in some of the most remote places in the U.S. is what keeps me going," Hines said in an email.
In general, TWAN founder Tafreshi said, "in Earth-and-sky photography we capture things which are mostly visible to unaided eyes, and the main effort is to show what was experienced by the eyes of photographer at the scene.
"I'm very pleased that our highly experienced judging team in the 2012 contest voted for more natural-looking images."
