Starry Sky, Washington

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos
Driving home over the Waterville Plateau, a waxing sliver of a moon that fell early below the horizon made for a perfect moment of stargazing. What was even more eerie though, was that the wind had completely stopped also. Even from about 30 feet up a small embankment I could hear my shutter trip for a 25-second exposure. The lights on the horizon, shining from over 70 miles away, were the city lights of Ephrata and Moses Lake, Washington.
