View From Above

Castle Rock is a stunning limestone landmark which towers 162m above the beach of Castlepoint in the Wairarapa, New Zealand. The view from the top is simple breathtaking, making the hike up there totally worth it...although the climb at night is much more challenging, and I certainly got a sense of vertigo going up there, especially when I sat on the edge of the cliff with all my camera gear to get this shot. But in the end it was amazing just being up there, watching the galactic center of the Milky Way rising to the east over the horizon, and it's something I'd certainly do again!
