B&B Photography’s description:

The Milky Way rises high above the horizon looking out to sea from my position at Dickmont’s Den. This shot was taken at around 3:30 a.m. on the 3rd May and was my final shot of the night due to running low on battery power and running out of darkness. You can see the light blue colour of daybreak approaching to the left of the shot and of course the light polluted orange to the right.

It’s lovely! Thank you for sharing it with us!
