It’s All So Far Away
Standing alone in the middle of the dark empty space
A cool steady breeze blowing from the North
The Milky Way shining brightly to the South
You realize you are but a mere speck of life in this vast Universe
You better make it count.

It’s All So Far Away

Standing alone in the middle of the dark empty space

A cool steady breeze blowing from the North

The Milky Way shining brightly to the South

You realize you are but a mere speck of life in this vast Universe

You better make it count.

August 11’s Moon Rise

I went to Marineland Beach in Florida which faces the East in order to watch the moon rise. The horizon itself was cloudy so the moon showed itself when it was well above the water. It was so beautiful though and the diffused light from the clouds made the light all the more warmer. I was all alone at the beach and I had the Walter Mitty Soundtrack playing while waiting and eating a sandwich I brought along. It was well worth the wait and the trip!

Finding Beauty in Death
An 8 minute exposure of the dead trees on the shore of Longboat Key, Florida. It is curious to think that even these lifeless trees add a certain beauty to the surrounding.

A twelve minute exposure to capture the star trails. Two minutes and forty five seconds of trying to stand as still as I could!

Alone with the Stars

When I was driving back from Jacksonville to Orlando, I decided to drop by Marineland Beach which was between St. Augustine and Flagler in order to take star photos. The sound of the waves crashing on the shore at night when you are all alone seemed very eerie.
