Starry sky in Canada

While on a fishing trip in Canada this summer, I took advantage of the fact that there was almost no light pollution to try and capture some long exposure shots of the night sky. Taken just before the sent went down, the nebula of the Milky Way can be seen emerging overhead an island cabin as the people who live there began to settle in for the night.
