Milky Way rising over wheatfield and camp

To the right, camp and the reserve I am set up in. To the left, large and open flat wheatfields. Over head? Milky Way arching spectacularly from horizon to horizon!

The Milky Way rising over wheatfields

1:30am, the last photograph from night one of my weekend trip to the wheatbelt of Western Australia. Quite chilled and tired by this point, but how could I not take another photo?

The portion of our Milky Way galaxy featured in the series of photographs from this weekend is the centre of our galaxy - you are looking towars millions upon millions of stars, many just like our own Sun. How many planets like our own I wonder?
