The Milky Way rises over flooded salt lakes near Beacon, Western Australia.
This week’s AG Reader Photo was taken by Kylie Gee south of Beacon, Western Australia.
“This is an image I captured at 2.24am on Saturday, 21 March 2015 during a New Moon phase over the salt lakes south of Beacon in the north-eastern central wheatbelt of Western Australia,” says Kylie.
“We have amazing skies out here and none more so than during a time when there is no Moon – it’s really extraordinary how clear and bright the Milky Way is.
I had passed these salt lakes several times and thought they would look fantastic with the Milky Way rising so waited until the Moon phase was right, set my alarm and headed out. I was not disappointed – it was simply stunning.
