Image Details:

That night at Pemaquid Point in Maine, was no ordinary. At midnight and long after, in the haze of the sky, millions of stars glittered in startling colors. It was a lovely night filled with friends, laughter and good conversation as we wait in anticipation of the moon to steal the show. Standing at the edge of the sea stack, I witnessed the milky way arching across the night sky with all the blazing stars shimmering in its cosmic clouds. It was glorious! Like a painting on a big canvas of night sky with luminescent strokes in shades of blue. Yet, it was still midnight. A night to remember. A night to remind you of the eventful dawn.
