I love how doing these time-lapses of the night sky makes me feel like were on a ball spinning through the universe at a billion miles an hour. We can also see the affect of the light pollution from urban areas as well. Remember that we can protect the night sky by keeping porch lights shrouded or off at night. Silence, solitude and darkness are valuable things. Stay tuned for more astrophotography and galactic time-lapses.
Photo above was taken a few weeks ago near Cape Disappointment, Washington. We were getting ready to pack up the car and I took one last photo before leaving. While the shutter was open my fiancee turned the car lights on for 1 second illuminating the foreground of the beach and the beachgrass. Made this shot a winner. I love serendipity.
