Milky Way so bright it highlighted the trees last night

Shot this one frame last night from my driveway with my DSLR. 20 sec exposure ISO 3200 with 14mm F/2.8 Nikon 750. Kept it at 20 seconds to insure star trails were not a problem.
I move out from the city to some really great sky for viewing.
This is the first time I have seen the Milky Way this bright and to be able to get a shot with one image.
