The center of our galaxy as seen from the temple of Demeter

This photo was taken at a remote location in the island of Naxos in Greece. In that location stands the temple of goddess Demeter for more than 2500 years, so I chose a part of the temple for my foreground and the night sky and the center of our galaxy for my background.
