"Do the stars gaze back?" - The Milky Way at Ladakh

Shot from Ladakh, India, Earth, "a small blue-green planet in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy" (-- Douglas Adams)

 

To say the least it was magical, and I wouldn't have thought of shooting it, if not for Vikram Franklin. Seen here is the silhouette of the Himalayas and the skies above
