Mill Mountain Star from Behind

This is a look at the workings that light the star at night.
This is the backlit star in the morning sun.

Hiked around Mill Mountain today and wound up at the star, looking for a different way to photograph it. There isn’t one, but here’s one that’s not done very often: from behind (with a few from the front).

This is the view from in front of the star.
This may be my favorite of the lot with the mini-mushroom cloud going off at the top of the star.
Here’s the shot you usually see of Roanoke.
