A central star in this picture is gamma Cygni (Sadr), and the star has been surrounded by the faint red nebula spread out like snatches of clouds. The nebula can hardly be detected in naked eye, but very photographed.
It's the deepest region just east (left-hand side) of Sadr, clearly recognized that is tangled with dark nebulae.
