Caption: "I could not sleep one night so I decided to take a walk outside. It was about 12:30 am when I saw two perfectly placed trees in the middle of a field of stars. It was almost pitch black outside so I left the shutter open for a half hour. The shutter finally closed so I headed back home with this photo."

Caitlin, age 18, from CA
