RV Photography shot this photo at Mälarhusens Strand, a beach in southern Sweden, in February 2018. He wrote:
The sun is creeping ever nearer to the horizon and soon dawn will be here … Time for one last shot and then sit and watch the sky for awhile.
You’ve got to stop and take the time to enjoy it as well as shoot it.
Bottom line: Photo of Milky Way over Mälarhusens Strand.
