Image Details:

This is the Galvez castle (or what's left of it) in the Toledo province in Spain. This photograph is my first attempt at using led lightning for the foreground.

To me, this castle with the Milky Way in the background is like an ancient monument pointing to the stars, standing up to the passage of time.

Thanks for watching.
