"I’ve loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night" Galileo Galilei

The tortured trunk of a bloodwood tree under the starry river of the sky. Taken July 2019 when we went back to visit our property in the Wollombi Valley. The large 'star' to the left of the milky way is actually Jupiter . While it had been known since ancient times, Galileo Galilei made the first detailed observations of Jupiter in 1610 with a small telescope. NSW, Australia.

friend I love your photographs; and a bit of envy because they make me want to want to be there

Thanks. Just have to get out there !

This reminds me of many nights staring at the stars in awe of the enormity of what the eyes are trying to take in. Great shot

Thanks. The stars are always amazing. Just to conceptualize what they really are.
