How Many Stars

How many bright white stars can I see embedded and twinkling in the gray of a crisp, clear and cold winter’s night sky? With the naked eye, I count forty or fifty, but the camera captures infinitely more in the cosmos. Someone’s paid their electricity bill up there. We are not alone.

Stars and Trees

Experimenting with the Night Landscape mode (and observing the limitations of a point-and-shoot camera 🙂 ) at 9:30 p.m. on January 31, 2014, with the trees on the right as a reference point.
