Branches

I'm amazed that we can take this in with all of the light pollution that we have. But, we still have a few places in the state (Indiana) where when the conditions are right it makes for quite a show.

Excellent makes my own first attempts look terrible and I live in dark sky area. Thank you for encouraging me to get out and do better.

+1. Beautiful image and fantastic sky, but it makes me so jealous, as living in Baltimore-Washington (DC) area the chances of ever capturing such a dark sky are about nil.

Nice! Southern Indiana? There's lovely hilly country near the Ohio River. (Cincinnati OH native, now live in St. Louis MO, drive through IN on a regular basis).

Montgomery county just outside of Shades State Park. About an hour or so east of Indianapolis.

Wonderful image, but I can' the lip thinking the title does not do it justice. The sky is the image, not the branches, or am I missing something?

Fair question. When I decided to make the tree a framing/foreground element, what I saw was the similarity between the the dark dust lanes of the center of our galaxy and the tree branches against the sky. Both like arms -branches- reaching out from the core.

That's what I see.
