Had a huge day at work, so it was well dark by the time I got home and the moon had set earlier, so the conditions were perfect and clear to catch the magnificent Milky-Way. I'm so fortunate that I can literally walk out my backdoor into my yard and take a photo like this.

S23 Ultra, Expert RAW, 10 seconds shutter delay, (to give me time to stand in place. I also wait till I hear a car coming), 30 seconds exposure, ISO 800, 12MP, f1.7, Focus 0.7, (blow warm breath around the light beam above my head to give a halo effect), Edit Lightroom Mobile.
