Starry Sunday

A flashback - at K's Rock in Utah in November, it was a mostly clear night with just a wisp of a cloud above us. I'd set up my camera to shoot the stars when I saw a shooting star zip above the tallest part of K's Rock. I hoped that my camera had captured it.

After I arrived home and started wading through my photos, I discovered that the camera did capture it.
After the shooting star, I left the camera going for hours, and this was the final photo. So many stars...
The thought of warm sun and clear night skies seemed almost surreal in our blustery winter world today. The fierce wind was whipping the fresh snow horizontally.
Quite a contrast...


  1. Beautiful photos! We were supposed to get 6-8 inches of snow today but only got about half an inch at most.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  12. Hi KB, if it is cold and snowy here, it must be really cold at your place. Sending you wishes for a healthy and incredible New Year.
