Imaggeo On Monday: One with the Cosmos

Imaggeo On Monday: One with the Cosmos

Camping under the stars is an experience that allows people to connect with the cosmos in a unique and profound way. As they set up their tents and gaze up at the night sky, they are reminded of the vastness and beauty of the universe. They can see the stars, the planets and other celestial objects, and feel a sense of awe and wonder. They are reminded that they are just a small part of something much larger. The darkness of the night sky and the absence of artificial light in the southern coast of Crete allows for a natural light show of the Milky way, which is a spectacle that many urban dwellers never get to experience. This specific photo is the result of 10 staked frames in order to reduce the noise
