December Night Sky

It’s probably been over a year since I photographed the night sky. At one time it was my most favorite thing to photograph. Over time I became interested in other things but tonight I went outside in the chilly night and turned the camera up.

There is something special to me about standing in the darkened woods and looking at the stars. Tonight the moon is halfway to full so I wasn’t able to capture the stars as I would on a dark moon but it’s still a most wonderful experience. During winter the sky is so clear. It feels like you could just reach up and touch the stars.
