The Milky Way Behind A Pale Moon Light

Hey guys!!! This is a picture I took of the Milky Way behind a pale half moon's light. It also helped that it was cold (50s f) and humidity was low which made the sky conditions clearer and ideal for star-gazing. As always, I was about 1 hour away from light pollution and about 3500 - 4000 feet elevation (I don't think the latter matters much.) Taken with my xti and kit lens (yes, xti... because my t3i was busy taking time lapse ^_^ ).

Milky Way,  ISO 1600, 21mm (I thought I had it at 18mm but it still works =p), 30sec, 2012
