Sunset Harbor

Fish Creek Harbor

Fish Creek Harbor

The weather was changeable in Door County – sunny skies followed by thunderheads and a brief storm just after sunset. Then at midnight, the skies cleared and the Milky Way poured a hazy band of white light that spanned the sky in a celestial arch. The moon was fully new and the stars put on a deafening show. Can stars be deafening? In the northern part of Wisconsin, with no light pollution to diminish the show, yes – the stars were truly deafening in their splendor.

    Threatening and beautiful at the same time. Your imagery of the night sky and the stars is as vivid as your photo. You have a way with words as well as the camera.

    Can stars be deafening?

    I wouldn’t usually think of them that way, but I really like the sound of the words.

    The photo is very unusual, almost like two totally different world colliding. Heaven above, and the austure, dimming harbor down below.

    I absolutely love this picture. Just the contrast between the sun and the cloudy, darkening sky, and the lake is beautiful.
