The Stairway to Heaven

Starlight 

It is a quiet and still night. A cool breeze gently brushes by; the milky way blazes in the sky above, the stars sparkle like jewels in the black satin sheet of night. Our true place in the Universe is revealed. We are undeniably small, surrounded by millions of stars in our own galaxy, which is just one of millions of galaxies. The experience of photographing the wonders of the night sky is a special one. There is nothing quite like standing alone in a desert, on a lake shore, or on a mountain top as the stars twinkle and make their way across the sky. On a clear night one can easily see shooting stars, satellites, and if one knows what to look for, the space station orbiting the planet. I want to showcase for you some of my favorite night sky images over the past couple months. May you never cease to wonder.
