This is a 63 shot panorama of the Milky Way setting over a lone gum tree on a farm in Cadoux, 2.5 hours north east of Perth in Western Australia.

This is easily the closest lone tree I have ever captured on any panorama, sitting just 15 metres away from me so it looks quite huge in this pano! I believe this is a canola farm but this was taken back in June so the canola is very young here, just sprouting I assume. I will have to come back when they are in full bloom in August or September, well that's if my recently injured back allows me to, it's stubbornly refusing to heal.

As usual with the Milky Way in this orientation, both the Carina Nebula (far left) and North America Nebula (far right) can be seen just above the horizon with the core on its way to setting towards the west. The light pollution is from the nearby Wheatbelt town of Wongan Hills.
