The Milky Way rises over the beach and ocean at Sea Island, Georgia. The palm trees on the right are along the cart path between the 17th and 18th holes at Ocean Forest, Sea Island, which is one of the top 100 golf courses in the world.
The light pollution seen behind the palm trees is from Sea Island and St. Simons Island. It silhouettes the trees, which was unplanned but a nice addition to the photo I think.
From my book, Sea Island at Night.
