We are quite fortunate to live in a city where light pollution doesn't completely obscure the stars in the night sky. I often head out into darker regions of the surrounding countryside, but thought it would be fun to test the limits of my camera with city lights in full effect.

As you can see, the skies are still dark enough to allow almost a full view of the Milky Way. If I had gotten up a little bit earlier, I could have captured the complete arch. Saving something for next time!

I hope you enjoy the photo!
