This is a frame from my new film for International Dark Sky Week 2014:

It's a simple thing that people have been doing since the beginning of mankind, an open camp fire miles away from anywhere with just you and the stars above. It's something I try to do as often as I can, even if there's no camp fire involved.

In this world where technology usually keeps us company, I think everyone should experience this at some point in time. For me it certainly puts life in perspective - so look up and enjoy, it's free for everyone.

This is a single exposure and part of a 12 second time-lapse.
