One of my favorite shots of the night sky in New Zealand. I didn't get an opportunity to do much night shooting due to cloudy skies. but this night on my way back from Wanaka the skies cooperated.
This is a section of the Milky Way that is not normally visible to the Northern hemisphere. The Southern Cross is visible in the center of the photo. The Greater Magellanic cloud is upper right. If you look very closely, you can also see 4 meteor streaks that happened during the 20 second exposure.
