Almost Heaven, Anywhere,Northern Hemisphere, Earth

Gary Hart (California, United States) on 4 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Given my life-long love for the night sky, it's only logical that I photograph it whenever possible. On my WordPress blog, I detail the path I've followed to get here.

Billion stars for you Gary. It's probably the best I've seen ever. Colors are more than fantastic. They are divine. Well done for this very brilliant crop giving such dynamism to the starry sky. It's SUPERB. You deserve a spotlight (and a round of applause).

Quite an amazing capture as you struggled to beat the fog bank, must have been really uplifting after you got home to find this one!

Wow....So this is what's above all that fog I have been in! Really beautiful!

@Tracy: Thanks, Tracy. Yeah, I took this from Hurricane Point, but it really could have been anywhere. We had some truly great conditions that gave us a couple of opportunities shoot down on the fog for a change.

Sandy Weston from Maine, United States

This would be the COOLEST cover for a book....maybe my first book if I ever publish one?!?! LOL! Gary, you have showed us how something so simple is so dramatic and eye catching...truly amazing! :)

@Sandy Weston: Good idea, Sandy. All I need to do now is write a book.

Hi gary - I hope I don't get this too late - I know you are off to hawaii maybe today, even?? Just wanted to tell you this image just carries me away! Like the Byrds song "Eight Miles High" or SInatra's "Fly me To The Moon" any one you choose - this is magnificent. I feel as though I am floating above this fog layer on the way to the heavens myself. The little speckled clouds there in the gold band of sky are like rest stops for the soul. The horizon is so promising and the starry sky is so exciting and powerful with Ursa Major opening her arms...It truly evokes a spiritual emotion.... at least in my heart it does! There are no restrictions, no inhibitors..just freedom. Your work has always done that for me...a release from technology and a free ride on the purist train......just a master with his camera and a bunch of happy passengers!
