First Photos of the Milky Way

These photos are the results of my first attempt at photographing the Milky Way a couple weeks ago. I am absolutely thrilled that I was able to capture these and grateful that I live in a wonderful rural town that makes it easy to do this.

I am convinced that there’s no way I could get photos like these while living in suburban Chicago. Looking up at the stars makes me forget about problems for a little while, and humbles me because I can see how small and insignificant we may be in the universe.

I think we all should look at the stars more often. Then we’ll see that the universe doesn’t revolve around us, we just live on a tiny planet in it.
