I shot this photo in the middle of the night, sailing towards the center of the Milky Way thousands of miles from the nearest light source. As you can imagine the camera moves with the boat, creating those interesting star trails in the sky while the boat stayed motionless relative to the camera. Nights like these were common on Velella, no lights to be seen but for the stars in the sky, a dim glow from the instruments humming away. Trying to catch some sleep, often filled with the most vivid dreams.
