Tip: ALWAYS bring your tripod if you plan to photograph the night sky.
I've had the immense pleasure of doing a bit of stargazing this summer. The night sky is a breathtaking view. Nothing makes you realize the vast expansiveness of creation like looking up at the stars. It feels so infinite, and in turn, I feel so small. I'm just a dot in this universe, yet the God who is bigger and more majestic than the Milky Way saw fit to make me and stick me on this planet? Wow.
It is so true that "the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork." (Psalm 19:1). Praise God for the beautiful world He has given us to dwell in, and thank Him for caring enough to create you and give you purpose.
