It’s the first Photo of the Month of 2018 and it’s stellar!

I’ve boasted about Lake Charles’ incredible sunrises and sunsets, but it’s not very often that I find a night sky photo that really wows me. Being a city with several industries and thousands of residents, our night skies are often masked by man-made lights. Houston native, Bailey Louden caught an awesome shot of the stars shinning over Lake Charles and two of our casino resorts, Golden Nugget Lake Charles and L’Auberge Casino Resort.

“I had some time to kill while waiting for a concert to start, so I went outside to walk along the lake for a little while. The sky looked so beautiful I just had to capture the pic.”
