Orion region

I have photographed this region many many times but never get tired of doing it again, especially if I am in very dark skies. The red nebulosity is glowing hydrogen and the white cloud on the left is a dim part of the milky way. Some dark areas correspond to dust obscuring stars behind, a common feature of the galaxy.
