The APME has honored this photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for July 2014.
Thanks to Patrick Whalen at the The Wall Street Journal for judging this month.
Here is what Patrick had to say about the winning image:
"His beautifully composed photo captures the enormity and magnificence of the Cosmos. Perfectly exposed showing the photographer and dwarfed windmill juxtaposed with the infinite night sky. Very enjoyable image on many levels."
