Weekly Photo Challenge: (Countless Stars Beyond) Numbers

A submission to this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge :Numbers

Countless stars beyond number.

These images taken of the night sky in Malawi last summer – the skies were so dark I got some great shots of the milky way – countless stars, thousands of light years,  billions of miles.

Dark Skies

While we were on Lake Nyassa/Malawi we were blessed with some very dark skies. No light pollution and a late rising crescent moon gave us the chance to see the Milky Way in glorious detail. This combined with the fact I was able the find a setting on my camera with a very long exposure and large aperture meant I was able to capture some of this on ‘film’.
