[MOUNTAIN PHOTOGRAPHY] Star-filled skies over Summit County by Daniel McVey

I walked outside to take out the trash last night, and there was an amazingly clear star-filled sky above.  Seeing the thick white stripe of our galaxy is always a nice treat.  If you're so lucky to attend a mountain wedding near the Breckenridge area, then you should escape the festivities to check out the stars for yourself.  You just might not want to go back inside.

We had some pretty heavy monsoon rains these past few weeks, but I'm already noticing social media chatter with the words "cooler mornings" and "feels like fall" going around.  Regardless, we suggest you grab a jacket, a beverage of your choice, and then go outside and stare up and the sky.  A saying comes to mind, and that's to "shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you still land among the stars!"
