This is not meant to be a ‘lazy post’, I just couldn’t resist sharing this masterpiece by Australian Astrophotographer Mark Gee. Of course we went there and hopefully one day we will return to this “loveless” place:
It’s hard to think that the earth is one –
This poor sad bearer of wars and disasters
Rolls-Roycing round the sun with its load of gangsters,
Attended only by the loveless moon.
From Stars and Planets – Norman MacCaig
What an absolutely wonderful performance in film and photography. Just reading about it on Mark Gee’s link, his blog feed, I found out this shot just happened recently on the evening of the 28th January 2013. Thanks for posting because you just made my day!
It made mine too.
Isn’t it just – I wish I could create something even half as stunning.
