PIllars of Creation by HST
November 27, 2013
I've always been fascinated by space. I read every book I could get my hands on, and followed every space shuttle mission as much as possible in the pre-Internet era. With the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope, my interest was taken to an entirely new level as I was introduced to astrophotography. The famous image of the Pillars of Creation inside the Eagle Nebula motivated me to one day become and astrophotographer myself. Finally, this past year I fulfilled that dream and captured my own image of the Eagle Nebula (though far less impressive than the HST version).
