Gideon Captures the Milky Way at Emu Ridge
Gideon, from Israel, is Wwoofing with us at the moment and has been a great help. He has quite a talent behind the camera. Thanks for sharing these awesome nights shots of Emu Ridge! Certainly a different perspective of our place. We love them! If you would like to see the Facebook album of his night time shots, please click here.
The night sky is disappearing before our eyes. The thousands of stars once visible to the naked eye are now obscured by the glare of industrial light and the haze of pollution, the Milky Way is now rarely seen. The Milky Way used to be a part of everyone’s life experience. We are amazed when visitors start taking pics of our night skies in awe of our beautiful stars and say it is something that they have never seen before!
Wwoofers like Gideon have always been a big part of our lives here at Emu Ridge. We have met so many wonderful travellers through our doors, friendships that will last forever 🙂
