Into The Light

Into The Light - The Southern Cross and Pointers set in to the brightly lit western horizon, behind a stand of tall silhouetted trees which were burnt in a recent bushfire.

The silhouetted trees in this nightscape emphasise the lines of the setting Milky Way which includes in this field the Southern Cross and Pointers. Behind the trees, to the west is the light of a crescent moon (not visible for the trees) and light from the City of Perth. Here the light creates the focal point to which the stars are setting and the clouds are radiating from. Only an hour earlier it finished raining after a wet and cold winter day, leaving the trees and ground around me soaking wet with water.
