The night sky is fascinating. It has a way of making us feel small, insignificant and humble. It has a way of showing us wonder and awe. There’s so much we don’t know and the night sky forces us to be at peace with the unknown. Sitting outside from 5:00pm until 3:00am with our only focus on the sky, from sunset, through twilight to moon set and Milky Way rise was really special. This is my first photo of the Milky Way and the first photography course I’ve ever taken. I was so grateful to spend it with two special people in my life. . . . . . #exploresask #explorecanada #parkscanada #grasslandsnationalpark #meanwhileinsask #nightsky #milkyway #milkywaygalaxy #nightskyphotography #fujifilm #fujifilmxt10 #fujifilmphotography #treaty4 #treaty4territory
