you have to be located on the southern hemisphere to have a glance at the galaxy at night. This is actually real, and its beautiful

Great photograph, the bold line of the tree leading to the upper line of the milky way is fantastic, the milky way pointing down towards the peaks in the background really pulls everything together, great work!

This -has- to be the most beautiful, awe-inspiring night sky I've ever seen. Looking at it
makes you feel so very small. And it's so wonderfully rendered. This photo is a testament
to the truly remarkable magnifiscence of the Universe. I'm envious that you got to see
this in person, truly I am. Breathtaking. +Fave.
