A friend who was curious about photography came up to the cottage this weekend, and was blown away about what he could see. “There are too many stars” was repeated several times while we photographed the Milky Way.
Here’s a single exposure, just taken before 1am on Sunday night. A large segment of the core of our own galaxy is visible between the trees.
