Thankful Thursday - For the Stars Above

Events this summer have made me slow down and feel gratitude for the simple things - like the fact that places dark enough to see the Milky Way still exist.
I took this image in a clearing within a towering pine forest high in the Rocky Mountains.

Thank you, Milky Way, for being so glorious.


  1. YES!! There Is Something So Special About Being Able To Gaze Up And See This Magnificent Beauty. Thank You SO Much For Posting This Gem. Like WoW

    Well Done

  2. Fantastic photograph. I do envy your broad view of the skies.

  4. Awesome photo! I thought about heading out to my brother's farm to see if I could catch the northern lights on Sunday but we had cloud cover. :(

  5. And thank you for showing it to those of us that can't see it.

  10. to see the stars on a clear night, no pollution or city lights to blur the Milky Way, that is what can lift our hearts. Hugs from a wet morning down here. And on Tv, I just heard there is possible snow on both North and South Island,

  11. Gorgeous. Lovely to live where the lights don't interrupt the night skies.

  12. I've never seen the Milky Way quite like that.

  13. That kind of view really puts things in perspective. ♥
