How creative can you get with the wide angle lens? Show us what you can do with lens sporting an effective focal length of 35mm or less. Remember to tell us what lens you've used (no fibbing) and on what body. Compact and SLR entries are welcome, but make sure the lens used has an acceptable focal length (check our Camera Database if you're not sure). Oh, and no borders! Good luck.

Taken at the Cerro Tololo observatory, in northern Chile, when the Moon was not up yet. The Milky Way runs vertically in the photo. Just right of the 4m telescope dome, is the Southern Cross and the Coalsack. Above it, alpha and beta Centauri. Near the top, the Scorpius tail, near the center of our Galaxy, some 25,000 light years from us. The dark nebulosities is caused by the dust in the plane of the Milky Way, our Galaxy. One can note the dome of the telescope reflecting (!) the starlight.
