Vía Láctea arriba de Los Picos
The village lights of Sotres light up the faces of the Picos de Europa (Spain/España) as the Milky Way can be seen above. This was taken last fall, during peak foliage season in the region. Got lucky with the shooting star jetting through the frame. This is the first time I had ever seen or photographed the Milky Way. Single RAW exposure. ISO 2500. No filters.

(Not sure why the Lightbox here on Flickr seems to soften the photo quite a bit.)
