10 Night Skies Worth Staying Outside For

Esteros del Ibera Wetlands, Argentina

A star filled sky is one of my favourite sights, as both a photographer and a traveller.  As a photographer, the creative opportunities are endless: different foregrounds, light painting, star trails, milky way shots, the list goes on.  As a traveller, the opportunity to gaze up at the stars takes me back to my childhood in the Australian outback.  It humbles me into insignificance at the same time I feel connected to a world that sits beneath one sky.

These are some of the night skies I’ve encountered on my travels – the ones worth staying outside to enjoy.
