Summertime in Nova Scotia is when family gets together. Traditionally, we have fires on the beach with our relatives and relax as the sun is setting.
It gives the kids much excitement as the ‘smores’ come out to be roasted. It’s an artform of placing the marshmellow, not too close as to catch on fire, but just close enough to brown, gently turning. They are better at it this year, as practice is paying off for them.
After the sun goes down, we watch the fire and the stars as they come out. The iPads are out trying to identify constellations.
This evening was perfectly clear and that gave opportunity to film the Milky Way. I think this one was my best efforts to date – everything was in focus, camera settings optimized, and here’s the result below.
