When I consider your heavens...

We're in the middle of nowhere (well, Hothorpe Hall to be exact) and part of what makes this Living Leadership conference great is the location. The people, food, focus of the studies and facilities are great too. Woke up to a beautiful sunrise this morning and was treated to some wonderful starscapes (is there such a word?) this evening.

Not done any post production on these as the software is on the other computer but I hope they give a sense of the surroundings. The one with the stars is a 76 second exposure which explains why the stars have left little trails - the earth's turning cause it, not camera shake! Even though the night was very black, the bottom half shows the light polution form a nearby town, though I don't mind the orange effect it gives this. Freezing cold but a lovely night to be out.

"When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what are mere mortals that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?"
Psalm 8:3-4
