ASTRO & AFTER DARK


 

I am definitely a natural born nocturnal and love an overnight cycle ride or hike to chase the Milky Way. There is something serene about venturing through the dark, especially how the senses sharpen and every sound, smell and speck of light becomes amplified in the darkness. Due to its vastness, America has some truly wonderful dark sky areas. Below are my best attempts to capture our wandering stars path through space.
