On a crisp, calm evening, when twilight fades to darkness and the stars reveal themselves, the troubles of the world seem fleeting. They have risen and fallen in our night sky for as long as we have known, and they will do so long after we are gone. Perhaps they seem eternal in this sense, but even the stars change over time, and there are only so many clear nights for us to enjoy them before they continue their cycle without us. Take the time, sit back and look up.
In this image, on one of the first clear nights of Milky Way for 2020, I sat by the shore of Vermilion Lake enjoying this serene moment in solitude. The Milky Way rose over this reflective pool on the lakeshore, arcing over the Town of Banff, Sulphur Mountain, and Mount Rundle. Temperatures at -10C were perfect to wrap myself up in a sleeping bag and focus my gaze skyward at our galaxy.
