Star Gazing

I've been dreaming of taking some star photos in a dramatic setting. On every one of our summer trips, the nights were interrupted by clouds streaming across the sky and obscuring the stars.

One day last November, I had a perfect night in the desert. There was no moon, and it was perfectly clear. I managed to take time lapse photos of the stars for many hours. Look how many stars there were and what long trails they made over the course of the night.
I can't wait to get out to the desert again. It is a perfect very dark place for star gazing!


  1. What a great photo! We love the colours and seeing something we'd never see if you hadn't had your camera there.

  2. Your star photos are always most amazing to us since we see very few stars where we live.

  3. Oh My!!! That colour and all those trails, thanks for sharing.

  4. A great place for it too!

    Your Pals,
