A photo as surreal as the place you took it. Well done.

Night on Mauna Kea Summit

Nominated! So many people have obviously taken a great deal of time to carefully craft the large number of great photographs entered this month. However, I feel that this shot really hits the brief - the subject matter on the ground and the subject matter in the sky complement each other - what are discs for?. Very nice, and, of course a touch surreal - but completely justified.
