Thank you all for the votes, Luz for loving it, Rachel for the favorite (means a lot, especially from you) and Don for the bling which I so did not expect - must have been the motion blur on the clouds that, along with the highly creative title :) , tipped the scale. Seriously, I'm honored.

This was my first attempt at a night sky shot - well, my second if you count the night before when I went out but forgot my tripod and got NOTHING and I really did not know whether I had succeeded at all or not. The more than respectable score on an image that does not scream "season!" pleases me more than you can know.

good title emphasizes the simple effective composition.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery
