"Stellar" – a photograph that truly captures the essence of Big Sur's mystical beauty. I was on a camping surf trip with friends and we stumbled upon this location.

It was a night like no other and the scene was set perfectly – a lone tree standing tall against the backdrop of a sea of fog, illuminated from beneath by the soft glow of the Lume Cube, while the moon cast its gentle light over the foreground.

And above it all, the Milky Way stretched vertically, its stars twinkling in perfect alignment with the tree.
