Entry 010 // Star Gazer

Have you ever been standing outside in the pitch black night when there are no sounds and you feel truly small in this big world of ours?

It so cold you can almost touch it and it feels like there is just you and nothingness but then one by one stars light up the sky and the show of colours begin. As the northern light dances across the sky and the scream of a fox echoes through the forest you feel something shift inside of you.

At moments like that it’s hard not to appreciate the magic of nature.

This photo called “Star Gazer” is a mock-up between a photo I took of Ida one magical evening in Taft Point, Yosemite and some of my photos of northern lights and the Milky Way. I created it as a reminder to stop once in a while and take in the wonders of the world!

    Åh vilket underbart foto! 🙏✨ En av de saker jag uppskattar mest med naturen är just att den får mig och hela mitt ego att känna sig liten.. vi är idag så uppslukade med att skapa och designa våra liv men i naturens helhet är vi fortfarande bara en lite pusselbit. Det är skönt att få vara liten ibland☺️
