I took the photo "Starry Starry Night" on July 30, 2017, shortly after midnight during a trip to the Oglala Grasslands in the panhandle of Nebraska. The visit was part of my two-week, 4000 miles, Foto Safari in 2017 with a small car loaded with gear and family. It was my first time visiting an area with minimal light pollution.
Living in Florida, you become accustomed to the horrible light pollution that obscures the night sky. That night in Nebraska was the darkest sky I had ever seen. The best part, of course, was sharing this with my family. It was also here I saw the Andromeda Galaxy for the first time.
I have prints of Starry Starry Night available on Hahnemühle's Photo Rag® Metallic. The natural white cotton paper contains no optical brighteners and has the characteristic Photo Rag® surface structure and sumptuous feel. Photo Rag® Metallic features an exceptional silvery-shimmering surface finish. The print looks fantastic! You can use the link above to order a print if you like.
