The lights of Billings, MT, seventy miles distant, illuminate the lower portion of the image and the Milky Way seemingly arises from the light.

Ken, what a fantastic shot!  It simply cries out for the scripture you chose.

Thank you, Jeanne.  When I took this shot last night, it was the first time I've ever tried a star-scape.  And was I ever excited to see that it actually worked!!!!  When I found that Scripture, I had the same thought that you shared :)

Awesome shot!  The verse does go great with it!

I remember watching those stars as I drove across Nebraska and Wyoming at night, marveling at the numbers!

Wonderful picture!

great image and appropriate Scripture verse!

Ken,

That is an outstanding photograph! I hope to be able to take images like that someday.

You might enjoy my free ebook, which combines daytime sky photography with scripture. It's available here: http://www.airgunsofarizona.com/blog/about-jock-elliott (There are NO marketing hooks), just click to open or download.

Cheers and blessings, Jock

Ken, I have always had a fascination with the stars, but have not photographed them this way. Would love to know how you did it. And also would like to know more about how to copyright on photos as you have done.  Any suggestions? :)
God Bless

Hi David!  I just started shooting stars last year, and find it easier to do than I thought it would be.  This particular image was shot with a Canon 1DX (full frame DSLR) and an EF 16-35L lens.  The settings for the shot were 16 mm, 20 seconds, f/3.2 and ISO 3200.  Because auto-focus doesn't work well at night, I use Live-View at full magnification on the LCD screen and then manually focus the lens.  Using a good tripod that prevents any camera shake is essential to get everything crisply in focus on the final image.  Hope this helps get you started, don't hesitate to ask if you need further assistance.  And please post your images so we can see them!

Regarding the copyright info....I process my images using Adobe Lightroom, which has a watermark function that allows the user to choose the verbage, font, color, watermark location, etc.  Using the watermark basically keeps honest people honest.  A copyright that would hold up in court would be obtained by filing for a copyright in whatever country you reside in.  It generally isn't very expensive to do so.  A quick Google search will direct you in the "How To" of the formal copyright process.
