This past weekend we had a big family get-together, a Christmas present to my mom. Mom, her kids, grandkids and great grandkids all gathered for a weekend of family and fun. Our chosen location, a beautiful Vrbo west of Fairplay, Colorado.
Tucked into the forest and well away from city lights, it provided a very early morning photo opportunity. My brother and I ventured out into the blackness and trained our cameras on the Milky Way to the south. The sheer number of stars you see when you get away from the light pollution of the city is stunning, something I miss greatly when back home in suburbia.
