Chenzeimachi Hado Peninsula

October 14, 2018

It is the evening of October 13th, and I decide to head to a place I have never been to, where the skies are quite dark, according to Dark Site Finder. It is about a three-hour drive, and I arrive there at close to midnight. I set up the camera on a prominent point looking out over the Genkai Sea. At midnight, my birthday arrives and I celebrate it with a cup of coffee and some chocolate. Then I sit and watch the heavens unfold all around me. This is about as good as it gets.

My brother wrote me recently and said “Nature is a part of us. There is nothing more! Keep exploring and sharing-all that wealth. For future generations-our planet’s health.”  I heartily agree!
