We haven’t had any visitors since Wednesday except for the seniors who came Friday night to watch the sunset. There have been a couple of thunder and lightning storms and lots of fog but today it’s crystal clear.
When it clears off at night and you go out, you’d expect to see constellations and stars more vivid than ever before, but what I hadn’t anticipated is that you have to look at them through the light of the Light. This effect is as though someone had put a dome of light over the entire island but it’s like a circus tent or an umbrella. There are alternating panels of frosty haze with black, which comes from shadows created by the supports of the structure around the Light which blocks the beam in a narrow band. Through that black, the stars are brilliant. In the haze, it’s like looking up at them from the countryside through a fine mist.
I’m anxious to post some of the shots we got, post storm. Enjoy!
