The Milky Way

One of the most profoundly beautiful moments in my life
was when at nine years old it was pointed out to me by my dear Irish mother.
Now when I gaze upwards into a clear night sky at the Milky Way I remember her warm smile

Thanks again Suni. Once you start stargazing it's hard to come down to Earth. Unfortunately it's a very expensive business shooting into deep space for which I presently don't have the kit.

Thanks Alyssa, this branch of photography is out of this world and the cost can be astronomical.

Thanks Kelly, I'm looking forward to shooting more 'astros' come summer when the nights are less brutally cold.
