This image is shot only 15 minutes from the central business district in Wellington, New Zealand. The south coast of Wellington is dark and remote, but easily accessible, and it's a place I spend a lot of time at night taking photos and watching the stars. I was shooting a time lapse this night and decided to climb up the rocks and stand there watching and admiring the sky above. For me, star gazing really puts into perspective just how small we are in the grand scheme of things, and just how vast the mind boggling the universe really is.
