Night time is my favorite time to photograph. It is cool, solitary, challenging and peaceful. Capturing star trails, moon shots and the colorful Milky Way were among the first shots I wanted to learn how to take after buying my first DSLR. Astrophotography reminds me of the infinitesimal space we occupy in the grandness of our universe, like that scary yet calming feeling of being on a desert island - out in space. When juxtaposed with Earth features like trees, mountains and man made structures, celestial photographs tell an open ended story that leaves much to be imagined.
