Scorpius rising

I took this image on the 5th of June while on holiday in Majorca with a camera and mini-tripod balancing on a rubbish bin. Looking east it shows Scorpius rising over the villas on the cliff tops and also the faint glow of the galactic centre in the lower left quadrant. This is an area of sky rich with Messier objects, see how many you can spot, I'm up to 14 so far!

Canon EOS550d, focal length of 29mm at f3.5, ISO800, 20 second exposure.
