Over Labor Day week-end myself and several friends were back in the Eastern Sierras. I love it over there. This time we ventured further south.
We spent our evenings photographing the stars. This image I made on our last night there.
I caught a shooting star above Mars, and Saturn is the bright star in the center of the Milky Way’s Dark lane about even with the top horizontal rung on the windmill. I didn’t know I had managed to catch the shooting star in my frame until I got home and uploaded my images.
The light pollution on the horizon is coming from the town of Bishop I believe.
I hope you’re all having a great week! Yeah, halfway to the week-end!

Wow !! Night Photography is very beautiful….at least your images are very beautiful.
Thank you so much for this lovely comment!
This is a beautiful capture, Deborah! I love the night sky. I grew up in a place dark enough to see millions of stars and gaze upon the Milky Way. As a child, I dreamed of being an astronomer and was forever asking for a telescope. This photo makes me long to visit a place like that again. 🙂
It took me a while to locate the shooting star, but I eventually did. Gorgeous, gorgeous photo, Deborah!! I’m just in awe of the Milky Way and combined with a windmill, it looks just amazing!
The windmill reminds me of the Midwest. Wonderful shot. 🙂
Thank you so much Judy! xx
Oh my goodness! I could stare at this picture and be eternally happy. Just perfect, Deborah!
Thank you so much Jennie for this lovely comment!
You are most welcome, Deborah!
Another favorite! Perfect timing and composition.
Thank you very much Camie!
A magical photo, Deborah! You have such a talent!
Oh thank you so much Antonia! You’re too kind!!
Thank you so much Donna!
Thank you so much!
You are welcome!
An amazing sight to behold! I bet it was a million (stars’ worth) times better in person! Your photos make my heart ache for travel 🙂
Thank you so much Joey! It was better in person. I love travel, but don’t feel like I get enough of it.
Thank you so much Jodi!
Beautiful photo, Deborah
Spectacular photograph Deborah!
Gorgeous picture! I’m glad you pointed out the shooting star, I never would have noticed it. I don’t realize how few stars we can see in our night sky where we live until I see a sky in an area with less light pollution. Such a loss.
It’s always fun when we find things in our photographs we didn’t know were there.
It is isn’t it. Thanks so much for the visit and comment Steve!
A lovely image Deborah.
Thank you so much Brian!
Holy Hannah! That is a gorgeous photo, Deborah. I love it. Hugs.
Thank you so much Teagan! xx
That’s a beautiful image, and it’s so cool that you captured a shooting star! I love the composition with the windmill against the blue sky.
Thank you so much Dan! I was delighted to find I had photographed a shooting star too! I saw several, but didn’t think I managed to capture one. It’s a lovely surprise to find one had after all.
Very nice picture. Interesting that you take up the issue of light pollution. Hope one day it will become a matter of concern for the wider public.
Thank you so much Marcus!
