Some nights offer a beauty of their own. Just before moonrise four days ago, fast-moving clouds caught that light, and I set up the shot at the top. It’s a 30-second exposure to capture cloud movement. Milky Way, below. And a fish net. Just because. (Note that today, Monday, is cloudy, windy, and rainy.)

Your night shot is spectacular. What is the bright light in it, almost touching the earth? My longest exposure was 4 min back in the day when I was using Kodchrome 10….it was of the Leaning Tower of Pisa….it came out excellent, with a bit more blue to it than desired.
