NightSkies and Light Painting
HEAVEN FROM EARTH
After waiting more than 2 years for the exact right conditions and "all the stars to align", I was finally able to capture this image from such a special and spritiual place. The only distraction that occurred while allowing the night sky to darken and doing many test shots, was that an UFO group tour started to set up right in front of me with their night vision goggles to be able to see UFOs! After explaining that I had been there waiting for some time, they did oblige and move to the side. I find it difficult to concentrate with distractions or other people nearby since I immerse myself so completely in the scene as it unfolds. Also very difficult to control all camera settings while in black out conditions as even a flicker of a flashlight contaminates your eyes from being able to actually see the MIlky Way.
What an incredible galaxy we live in, but so few will witness this. I am so happy to be able to share this wondrous site!
