Ancient Relationship

How long have humans gazed into a fire or up at the stars and wondered? The pristine night sky of today’s wilderness recreates primeval viewing conditions, serving as a type of time machine to our ancestors’ experiences. Contemplating fire and the night sky in such a place creates an ancient, magical, and spiritual connection for me. Location: Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, 20 August 2019 Self portrait
