Q: Will we ever get a reply button?

A: Do you know?

Aside from being a photographer I consider myself a big nerd. I love reading about science, about new discoveries, new theories about the world, watching documentaries... I love learning.

Recently I've been quite interested in The Universe. What do we know about it? When did it start? All those questions we usually think about as a kid but that we usually forget about when we become adults and have other things to occupy our minds.

Last saturday I had the opportunity to go out of the city in the middle of the night and I found myself in the middle of nowhere (Nowhere, TX, population 4) with a beautiful clear sky above me. I couldn't help myself and I spent a significant amount of time with my camera.

Above all, this photo stole the night.

How crazy is that the Moon, that "little" round thing is 238, 857mi (384,403km) away from us, and we can still appreciate it and all it's glory using no more than a camera and a good lens?

Or is it crazier that we DON'T marvel at it on a regular basis?
