Summer Milky Way

Wide field from Puglia, southern Italy, at sea level! 90 frames unplanned, unguided.
Unbelievable... I could see the milky way from the shore, so I plugged the remote and placed the camera on a brick. Unfortunately, some mist were present near the horizont... and during the process it popped-up so bright...
This is anyway a postcard to remember me how polluted are our skies.
