March Milky Way
On the first night of spring 2012, Summer Milky Way is seen rising above highlands near Keles, Bursa, Turkey. The foreground does not much look anything like summer, as it is just a few days after the last snowstorm of the season. Snowy Uludağ towers over the highlands to the north and east (left). Lights of Bursa, 70 km away, still ooze from behind the 2500 m high mountain.
