Photo of the Week: Milky Way

IMG_8711Harcourt, Canada

Living in a city like New York with the lots of light pollution it’s impossible to see the stars at night.  That’s why I appreciate the rare occurrences when I am out in the open and I can look up and see the sky full of stars.  This photo was taken on our trip to a cottage, a few hours north of Toronto.  Late at night after the parents went to bed, we stole down to the pier with our flashlights, blankets, and cameras.  By the water, with the silence periodically broken by the sharp cry of a loon looking for its mate, the slow moving water gently swayed the dock as we quietly laid in a row. Looking up, the Milky Way was perfectly visible strewn across the inky black sky. Millions of stars twinkled, creating an unforgettable moment that I got to share with my family.

Every week, I’ll share a photo with you from my adventures around the world and at home.  Most of my photos have little or no post processing.  If you would like to see more, please click the Follow button.
