The night skies of 2018 ✨

The night sky in its obscurity + mystery is such a catalyst into boundless wondering for me. Usually, I think about people and connection.

And the night sky in its enormity in scale + beauty…well, I feel as though I could spend a lifetime capturing it and never feel like I’ve done it justice.
