stars

 

I think this is the image that best expresses how dark it is in a zero light pollution location.

 

there's nothing special about it otherwise. just that it shows what the sky actually looks like. it's not dark, as such, because there's so many stars.

 

this is a shot mostly straight up, with a 20mm lens. showing the Cygnus constellation and the milky way behind it. possibly parts of Cassiopeia. you can see andromeda lower right.
