Milky Way reflections in a dam near my house in Australia. A very slight breeze was disturbing the surface of the water on the far side of the dam. Red colour in the sky is airglow and the brighter patch is distant light pollution from a city about 100km away.
Canon 5D mkII, 14mm, F/2.8, ISO 3200, Single 30 second exposure.

Thanks :D Because I use a camera that has very little noise at that ISO and what noise there is is easily removed in post processing.

You just got yourself another watcher :)

This is incredible. If I may ask you a question, please... Do you truly see that kind of sky with the naked eye? And if you do, how far do you have to go out and away from cities or light-sources?

Thank you :D Yes you can see the Milky Way with your own eyes as long as you get well away from artificial lights, but you don't see it as bright as this.  The long exposure and high sensitivity to light of the camera brings out a lot more detail and colour.
