"The Heavens Above," a small Lands End Moon Stars Milkyway PRINT by Deborah Gregg
"The Heavens Above" a small PRINT by Deborah Gregg
This scene was inspired by this wonderful quote:
"One summer night, out on a flat headland, all but surrounded by the waters of the bay, the horizons were remote and distant rims on the edge of space. Millions of stars blazed in darkness, and on the far shore a few lights burned in cottages. Otherwise there was no reminder of human life. My companion and I were alone with the stars: the misty river of the Milky Way flowing across the sky, the patterns of the constellations standing out bright and clear, a blazing planet low on the horizon. It occurred to me that if this were a sight that could be seen only once in a century, this little headland would be thronged with spectators. But it can be seen many scores of nights in any year, and so the lights burned in the cottages and the inhabitants probably gave not a thought to the beauty overhead; and because they could see it almost any night, perhaps they never will." ~Rachel Carson
When you need to get a little perspective on things, go out on a clear night and look up, it's all very amazing. :0)
