From my archives.

Here is the lower right-hand section of the Milky Way Galactic Core together with the colourful Rho Ophiuchi Nebular Complex. This was taken at our favourite astrophotography shooting location in Beckwith Township about 30 kms west of Ottawa. The three structures are large 3-story solar panel building that generate solar power for the Ontario hydro grid.

I felt a little wild and crazy so I went a little nuts with the colour intensity! Enjoy!
