Through The Clouds

Through The Clouds - Milky Way

Taken during a stormy night, I was lucky to see part of the milky way peep through the clouds before quickly disappearing again. With more galaxies out there than grains of sand on this planet, it is truly breathtaking to imagine we are witnessing through the camera lens distant the life and deaths of stars outside our own galaxy (for those curious, these stars can be many thousands and millions of light years away. We are merely witnessing a history of some distant galaxy that could have already imploded upon itself as the star dies)
