Wow! Thatís so cool! Itís crazy to think that some of the stars in the sky may not even be there anymore. They may have already died. We would still see the light from them, due to how far away they are and how fast light travels. Gotta love astronomy! lol

Let me know, I had to doctor that one a little too much for social media, so I have a better copy if you want it

What lens and settings did you use to get those images? What kind of light did you use for the painting on the trees and mill?

Sorry it took a while to get back to you on this. I used my Canon 70D with a Tokina 11-16mm lens for both shots.
Settings for both were: F-stop: 2.8, 20 second exposure, ISO 1600

On the windmill photo I used the light from my iPhone to paint the tree and the mill.
