After the midnight in July, I have captured a whole view of the summer's Milky Way started to sink toward western skies. You can see the Polaris in upper right hand side, a dimmed lump of light of the Milky Way is stretched to the mountain range of Mt. Yatsugatake located at the central upland of Japan.
