Photographer's Note

Tonglu night holds a magic for those who dare to venture out and brave the subzero temperature in the biting winds. A thousand stars come out and one actually feels what is meant by the term 'starlight.'
The best time to catch such a clear sky is winter .. especially mid November to mid february.
The spectacle is magnified a hundred times if the night happens to be a new moon.
In this shot one can see the beautiful Orion and the red tinge of M42 (the Orion Nebula)! (Thanks to BMukherjee for the info on the M42)
