Kilauea Caldera and Milky Way, Hawaii

People who don't understand photography often look at an image like this and think I've done some Photoshop shenanigans to get this color. The reality is, this image required very little processing. While this isn't what my eyes saw (there wasn't enough light), it is what my camera saw. You can read about this image's capture and processing on my Glow in the Dark post.

Just HAD to read the blog post Gary.
That touch of yellow has probably made a world of difference, having said that, it was awesome photography to begin with.

@Curly: Thanks, Curly. The flame was yellow to my eye, but it was just too bright for my camera at the exposure necessary to bring out the Milky Way.
