Artist's description:

I captured this image of the Milky Way Galaxy rising over the glow of the evening sky in the summer of 2017 in central France. I am always seeking dark sky locations and it is rare to find such clarity in the night sky. Travelling to central France (near Limoge) offers some of the darkest and clearest skies in Europe.

I love this image for its simplicity and the detail of the Milky Way, however, if you look closely, you will also see a hint of green in the sky caused by a rare phenomena in the atmosphere called Air-glow.

This is a special image for me as I love to photograph the magnificence of the night sky and create an artistic viewpoint, I love the colours of the twilight as the light fades and the Milky Way rises overhead.
