“MANY people think that to get great views of stars you have to go to places like the tops of volcanoes in Hawaii, But some of the best sky in world can be seen in Australia’s mountains in winter.
“This photo was taken on a farm in the snowy mountains called Yalcowinna, it is far enough away from any town that the stars are able to be seen in all their glory. The night I took this photo it was -8 degrees C making the sky even clearer than normal. The milky way stretched across the entire length of the sky with shooting stars ripping across every few minutes. The tree in front is one of the only snow gums on the farm and is few hundred years old, this was just another night in its long life.”
