Gum trees and stars at night

I took this photo tonight about 500m from my house with a bright moon behind me and a torch to light the tree, (Canon 600D, 18mm, f/3.5, 13sec, ISO400)

The bright star directly above the trees is Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to our sun at 4.3 light years distant.
