Starry Night in Silverhill

September 2, 2014


Silverhill Alabama, Fairhope Supply Co.

Silverhill, Alabama is a beautiful rural community to the east of Fairhope. These photos were taken a few weeks ago by my son at our friend’s farm.

This is one of the many areas of Baldwin County that is unaffected by city lights.

*My son reported he used “nothing special” to get these photos, just his Cannon 60D with a tripod and a long exposure of around 30 seconds.

    1. I know a few years ago, some towns were passing laws to limit lights at night. I am all in favor of dimming the public lights. So many people have never seen a full sky of stars. northern Michigan must be a beautiful place!

  1. Some talent that sweet son of yours has! And I would have to wholeheartedly agree that there is nothing like a “country” night sky! 🙂

  2. When we were in Montana with the “Bg Sky” full of stars my friend introduced me to an app called Starglobe. It is super easy – you hold it up in the air and it identifies the stars and constellations you are looking at. Amazing!

    1. I’ve got to get that! I get alerts when the Space Station is flying over our area and I like to go out and see it. I’ll bet in Montana, the stars would be a fabulous show!
