The Pinnacles at Nambung National Park in Western Australia provides a fantastic spot for photographs. The rocks in the foreground provide an almost alien landscape under the white glow of the milky way. The Eta Carina nebula is the barely visible pink flower like smudge in the center, along with the dark shape of the Coal Sack dark nebula, and to the right is the ball shape of the Large Magellanic Cloud. At the very top you can see the constellation of Orion.
The image is a stitch of four exposures, taken one after the other. The first was a focused on the pinnacle in the foreground, and the others were at a different exposure time / ISO spanning around 100 degree vertical.
