Manzanar memorial under the stars

The Kanji on the Manzanar monument translates to “soul consoling tower” and honors those who died there in the 1940’s. Definitely a weird experience being on those grounds (especially at night) as it plays a big part in Japanese history. The monument is tall and points towards the sky so snapping a shot under the heavens seemed like a fitting tribute. This was taken on the way back to Mammoth from Alabama Hills. We stopped at a few spots to snap some MW pics through the night. This is a single composed frame taken 4 times back to back and stacked for noise reduction. Normally I would shoot some longer exposures for the foreground but we just snapped these and moved onto the next spot.
