From my backyard the other night. While I'm only an hour or so from Melbourne, the skies are generally fairly clear. I did tweak this in Photoshop by creating a subtraction mask, to reduce the orange glow from the City lights.

Here is one I took a while back with a 60D in the middle of night at Old Faithful.  It is likely a repost, but it brings back great memories of being all alone while Old Faithful went off.

Thanks Click. I must admit, trying to remove light pollution from an image is a tricky thing. Working out what is "normal" colour takes a good eye and the ability to stand back and say "...nope, that's not right....do it again..."  :)

From our camp on Mt Baker a couple months ago, I'm not that happy with the composition but it was very early in the morning and we wanted to start climbing so I didn't have much time!

Taken with the excellent Samyang 14mm f/2.8, best star lens for Canon cameras IMHO. (haven't tried the 16-35 f/4.0 IS for stars yet, still too bright up here in Alaska!)

Took this photo out of my bedroom window from a townhouse located in the middle of town illuminated by nearby streetlights.
