    Taken early in the morning last weekend from under a mobile phone transmitter tower in the middle of nowhere.

    Why hasn't anyone commented on this!? The number of stars in that sky is just staggering. I love it :)

    What else I would do?
    Be in bed and SLEEP, of course.
    Why would I got outside and into the DARKNESS of night, with all the rain clouds covering every star and even the moon! Nothing but wetness out there ;).

    Does this photo mean to say there is "hope on the horizon" for us here in Germany (and hope for some better weather than ours here next weekend in Saffron Walden?) - is a nice high pressure area looming somewhere that offers open skies and starry, starry nights??????

    Thanks all for your comments. :D

    Looking through the Milky Way there are millions of stars! :D I've finally found a brilliant dark spot that doesn't suffer from light pollution. (and I don't get the police out every time either!):cheer: Very little editing was needed aside from curves to darken it a little and put a little more blue into the sky.

    28mm lens at F2.8 for 8 seconds on iso400 film with a very dark sky. (Any help?)

    Thanks :D I've found shot of stars on their own very interesting & informative to me and astronomers but not too good aesthetically. They do "look" much better with something else in there.

    LaFoto: A warm dark night with good seeing and the overwhelming realisation of just how big everything is out there compared to sleeping? With the meteor shower nearly at full swing there are loads of shooting stars to see and with us trying for a brother (or sister!) for NJ that's a lot of wishes!

    OK, I do see why the last of your reasons is reason enough, indeed, to be up and out at 3 a.m. Yes, especially that.

    And if the meteor shower were to be seen where I am - which it is not because of the thick, thick cloud cover - I might feel tempted, too.

    But neither are our nights warm (9 - 12°C), nor do we have any good seeing at all.

    And a brother or sister for my two would (in these days and in future days to come) be a catastrophe... :shock:

    Excellent shot. Star gazing is definately a great pass time.
