Wide-angle photograph of the Milky Way Galactic Core rising almost vertically from the horizon, with brown dusty star dust and magenta nebulas visible. The sky is full of stars, and there's a bit of yellow/green light pollution near the ground. In the foreground, a dirt path curves from the lower-right corner of the image to the bottom of the Milky Way. There is a derelict religious building (sanctuary) on the left.
