Where the hell is Dubbo….?

Some facts…



Did you know…?

This image is a combination of two different images, from two different places…the foreground, Parkes Radio Telescope, taken at daytime, and the background, star trails, taken somewhere between Lightning Ridge and Roma, on the way down to Parkes. Since it is not allowed to stay at this place at nights, that´s been my only chance to get an image I had pre visualized before I got there.
