Star Streaks and the Milky Way

When we go camping and there is a chance of clear evening skies, I usually try to have my tripod with me so that I can attempt some long-exposure starry exposures.  With dark skies and not a whole lot of nearby light pollution, the night sky above the Joaquin campground in upstate New York is always a great place to capture some starry photos.  This particular photo was taken by pointing the camera nearly straight up and captures a 3-minute exposure of tons of stars with the cloud-like Milky Way serving as a backdrop.  Considering this was just a small portion of the sky, it was amazing just how many stars were lighting up the night!
