I made sure all the settings were right, then pointed my camera towards the north star, engaged the shutter and just sat down. And I sat, and waited and took in the growing darkness and the rest of the night sky. An exercise in patience and the art of self distraction. It’s kind of like meditation, in a way. I left the camera shutter open for an hour or more and let myself do other things. Like gazing at the night sky and sitting. And every once in a while, waiting and talking to myself. “Not yet, not yet. Take a walk around in the dark and look at the beauty of the desert sky.” Night time in the desert is awesome!
