Photographed with a Canon EOS 7D, Sigma 17-70 at 17mm, f2.8, iso 6400 for 20 seconds, Manfrotto 055x pro tripod with Manfrotto ballhead.
With sheet lightning all around me, I knew I had to capture this scene quickly as time was running out. Looking south, this photo depicts the Sagittarius region of the milky way. I got a few long exposures in before the approaching storm got too close.
