Three days of cloudless skies were more than we would ever ask for. Rarely are the rain gods of the Southern Alps this merciful. Noting opportunity, we made for the hills. We took this shot poised on the edge of Fiordland while we waited for the sun to swing back around the other side Earth. This is what the night sky would look like if it took your eyes/brain 9 minutes to process light. Luckily, my Canon can do what my intervalometer asks.
I come from Tennessee. I live on stories about Earth History in any shape and on every scale.
