What do you see when you leave the lights of the city behind? What is possible to observe and capture when you take the time and initiative to get away and find yourself in clear, cool skies? Well, it’s going to vary but if you ever get the opportunity to see the sky like this image here from Erez Marom make sure you take pause in the realization of what you’re looking at. Imagine finding yourself in a sky so dark that it’s difficult to identify the constellations that you’re used to observing. That’s exactly the case when you leave the lights behind.
In this image from Kirkjufell, Iceland we see the incredible night sky, Milky Way galaxy and a hint of aurora borealis over the beautiful Pyramid Mountain. The water so calm, stars reflect off of its surface nearly giving the appearance of the mountain being suspended in space. If you track back to the objects in this image you have Pyramid Mountain just meters away, the stars of the Milky Way hundreds of light years away, the plane of the galaxy tens of thousands of light years away and at upper left is the faint glow of the 2.5 million light year distant Andromeda Galaxy.
I really hope that you enjoy this image and please check out more of Erez’s works in the links below.
