Pleiades Rising Over Wingra Park

Pleiades Rising Over Wingra Park
These lovely companions of the fall and winter night sky are back, the Seven Sisters of mythology, the star cluster of astronomy.

Note: Parts of Wingra Park are dark for a city park, but the sky isn't very dark by astronomical standards. All things considered, I'm pleased with the result I got after freezing my fingers and fumbling around a lot in the dark and making a dumb mistake by leaving negative exposure comp on from another shoot, especially since I was using a compact camera.
