This is the Labas lake in the french Pyrénées. weather conditions were particularly appropriate to capture the milky way.

This image is composit of 2 exposures, the first for the ground taken at 8h49 pm and
the sky exposure taken at 9h26 pm. As there were absolutely no moonlight I needed to take the ground exposure with the last crepuscular light to ensure a correct image quality.
