Constellation Cygnus and star Deneb beam brightly above an ancient castle ruin in this beautiful night sky photo.
Veteran astrophotographer P-M Heden of The World at Night captured this image from Uppsala, Sweden in Sept. 2012. The deep landscape shot required only a wide aperture and filter to boost contrast.
