There is something about great astrophotography shots that really help you to connect with nature and the universe. They make you realise just how insignificant we are, on this tiny planet lost among billions of others.
This photograph by multiple award-winning Italian photographer Ivan Pedretti does exactly that. I love how the rocky foreground and tree of the Sardinian wilderness connect to the Milky Way as it arches round and brings you back to Earth. The symbolism of how he are connected to the universe and part of an eternal cycle is incredibly strong in this image.
Ivan is a supremely talented landscape and astrophotographer. I strongly recommend that you use the link above to see the image on Flickr and take your time to browse through the rest of his work.
