The Starlight Collection

“When I look at the stars, I see myself” Jon Foreman of the band Switchfoot sings in the song, “Stars.”

When I look at the stars I dream, and I am humbled. Tiny specks of light have traveled years, yes years, and here we are, gazing at an old, yet stunning collection of light. Again, humbling.

Since learning how to take starlight photos, I have been able to capture the stars and Milky Way in Peru, Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, Missouri, and the Adirondacks in New York thus far.

Wherever my travels take me in the future, I always want to remember to get out at least one night of the trip and look upward.
