On a recent dark (no moonlight) night I went up to Corolla to photograph the Currituck Light. I got some distant views with the whole Milky Way, but a small looking lighthouse. My favorites from that night were closer views from the grounds, and especially this one through the trees. The starry sky with a meteor streak and a little of the Milky Way is beautiful. The contrasting warm color of the lighthouse and the light from it provide the color interest, while the straight lines of the structure in the middle ground make a nice picture. But for me, the organic lines of the silhouetted trees against it make this image special.
I hope you enjoy it,
