Rarely photographed petroglyph captured under the stars. This is one of the most interesting glyphs I've never seen...so simple yet so powerful. It's quite large, about to two feet in total height.

Stephen has received many other awards and achievements. His work has graced the pages of such notable on and offline worldwide publications such as National Geographic, Popular Photography, Outdoor Photographer, National Wildlife Magazine and many others.
