35mm selfi panorama of the
Milky Way

Details

Showing yourself under the night sky is not uncommon, especially as a beginner you tend to take pictures in which you point yourself into the sky with the flashlight ūüėÄ (I advise against doing this, as you are often not alone and you can often see these lights very far away!)

At first I only wanted to show the landscape + sky in this picture, but I thought it would look a bit different if I stood next to it.
