Description

Hyades - one of the largest open clusters in our sky, creating a characteristic pattern with the guest star Aldebaran. The whole thing is slightly obscured by dust clouds in Taurus, which, by scattering the light of the surrounding stars, make up a fantastic composition, big enough to become the subject of the wide filed frame.
Another effect of last year's autumn trip to the Bieszczady Mountains. The whole thing was captured with a 135mm Samyang and a modified Nikon D610.
