There's something magical about photographing the night sky.
Beginning with a long drive on a dark, windy road. Then attempting to position yourself in the best place with a headlamp that only allows a few feet of vision.
I like the time in between photos. Each one takes 15 seconds to 30 minutes. That time is all yours to gaze up at the universe and think.
When you're staring at the milky way and other stars for long enough, you can even feel yourself spinning with earth about it's axis.
