Joy in a Moment

Joy in a Moment

This is my very first picture of the night sky, taken a few hours before dawn at Monument Valley. It was a moment of pure joy for me, not only to just see the stars and the Milky Way from this amazing spot (at home in Los Angeles, I'm lucky to see a handful of stars in the night sky), but to finally learn how to capture it that moment on film (previous attempts were -- less successful). It's happiness in a small JPG - I can open it whenever I want and put a smile on my face.
