Milky way at Ocean’s Edge

They say the edge of the ocean is strange and beautiful place. For some it’s just a view of the open ocean; for others it’s the sight and sound of the waves crashing against the shore. For me, it’s that moment at dark when milky way is high in the sky and I’m standing at the edge of the ocean gazing at the eternal world of stars and waters.

That night somewhere on the Ocean drive at Acadia National Park in Maine, I stopped to look around. Night sky was lit up with million stars and they met in ethereal union with the ocean waves. Like as if the stars danced in perfect harmony with its reflection on the silent waves of the ocean. The view was truly spectacular.
