Since I started loving photography, I notice the beauty of the sky much more than before. This summer, when we camped high in the mountains, the Milky Way was omnipresent, rotating around our campsites throughout the night. It is a gift to get to see it, so far away from city lights.
On one particularly dark night, after the moon had set, I woke up in the wee hours of the morning. I quietly sneaked outside to look at the stars. It was inky dark and completely quiet. Above me, the Milky Way seemed to glow above a bank of clouds that clung to nearby mountains.
When we're camping, I have my camera on a tripod almost all night when
the weather is good. So, it was easy for me to take a photo of the ethereal sight.
I make a point of getting outside and "Seeing Beautiful" every single day. Some days, like the two that I just told you about, the sky is what catches my fancy. It is, indeed, beautiful!
