..shall shine as the brightness of the firmament. Daniel 12: 3

I know this isn't perfect but it wouldn't be a challenge if it it were easy...I used a tripod to shoot this picture. Some of the willow tendrils are included with the stars....The weeping willow tree was huge at one time and got knocked over by a storm a few years ago. It is trying to sprout again from what is left of it.

    Thank you for your comment Tiia....Finally got brave and made an effort. I admire the patience it takes for those who have mastered and perfected the ability to shoot the stars...I am going to try again and hopefully do a better job next time around...I should have set my exposures manually that I did not do on this shot.

    ORION IS A FAVORITE...the Red Folk see him as a symbol that hunting time has arrived. Great capture.

    The Orion Nebula is spectacular when viewed with a telescope or high powered binoculars. It is directly beneath the three star belt.

    Thank you Ioana ...You shoot so many beautiful pictures and I am sure you would
    excel at shooting stars too...I still wish to accomplish a better job than what I did here and will try again to hopefully get that opportunity when the ground isn't as soggy from melting snow.for my tripod to stand level on.
