TO SHINE UPON THE EARTH

God set them in the vault of heaven to shine on the earth … ~ Genesis 1,17.  I already know this is going to be a very short post because, first and foremost, I am a photographer and count yourself blessed if I squeeze out a word or two. I like to think I write just the right amount. Hehe.

So, this happened a few hours ago. You know how I always say I don’t go anywhere and have nothing to shoot. Well, for this, I had to go where no man has gone before – to my backyard. Or a little bit further. One moment I was lying on my bed, having nothing to do and then, a moment later, my inspiration triggered. I was out in 2 minutes with a tripod. Basically, there was I, stars, corn fields and an owl. Pitty I didn’t photograph the owl.

It is one of those rare, autumn nights when the sky is clear. There is no usual mist blocking my lens to catch the stars clearly. Because we’ve been having somewhat warm, sunny days and cold nights, nightly fog is a common appearance. Who knows what tomorrow might bring. Maybe this was the last clear sky in the next two weeks. I’m glad I photographed it. Also, the moonlight was a thing, too. Even though the moonlight usually dims the stars, it provided a pretty light on the corn field.  I think everything worked in the best possible way. One thing I noticed. None of my six cats appeared. Funny as there is at least one, always jumping out of nowhere.

Also, I wanted to photograph the corn fields around me as there is still harvest ahead and, in a few days, all the fields in the photos will be left bare. I’ve been sick for the last couple of days and that is my excuse to end the post here. Like I said, I write words inspired by photos and wouldn’t have it any other way. Hehe. Stop and observe the stars more often. God bless.
