"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
This is a single tracked exposure I took of the Milky Way in the Grand Tetons. Canon 5DM3, Rokinon 24mm, f/5.6, 110 sec, ISO 2000, mounted on a Vixen Polarie star tracker. A radial zoom filter was applied in post.
HELP! I’m writing a book with quotes from poets, scientists, and philosophers who have been in awe and inspired by our starry night skies. I have hundreds of quotes from great thinkers, most of whom come from the Western world, and many with Judeo-Christian values. However, I lack quotes from great Eastern world thinkers or religious leaders (Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism). Can you share some of your favorite quotes or point me to the right people?
