A Notable Photo of the 2014 International Earth & Sky Photo Contest.
From the photographer: "As the past of chilly winter, the central bulge of Milky Way rises over the eastern sky before dawn, symbolizes the beginning of Spring. The orange dazzling light above the mountain is from the rising Venus, the morning star. The scene was recorded above a sea of clouds which are lit by the nearby County Yuanyang in Yunnan province of China."
