Sailing Toward Orion

A moonlit seascape from the deck of the Solway Lass, taken while sailing toward Hook Passage in the Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia. The nearly Full Moon is at upper left, and Jupiter below near the Hyades and Aldebaran. The stars of Orion are behind the main topsail mast and halyards, Sirius is to the right of the rear main mast, and Canopus is at right. This is a 1 second exposure at ISO 6400 from a moving ship.
