Galaxy was seen from Mars

It was my first attempt at capturing the Milky Way in Malibu. I didn’t even know that it was possible due to light pollution. And yet it turned out that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. One of the houses on the cliff lit a section of the El Matador Beach, so I decided to take advantage of that. Although it was slightly too bright to my liking, the end result was quite surprising - as if our galaxy was seen from Mars where liquid water were flowing on its surface.
