The central bulge of The Milky Way rises over a coastal lagoon in the Bay Of Fires, Tasmania.

I really wanted to capture a literal Bay Of Fires image when I spent three nights in this part of Tasmania recently. So I scouted around for a nice coastal inlet with a good chance of giving me some nice reflections of the stars. The water wasn't quite as still as I had hoped leading to not many stars reflected, but I am still pretty happy with the result. The lighting of the opposite shoreline came courtesy of a car traveling along the road. Two image composite. One for the aforementioned lighting and one for everything else.
