In the words of Anderson Japanese Gardens’ designer, Hoichi Kurisu - There is a tremendous grace and energy inherent in ancient rhythms. Once calming and exuberant, the natural elements remind one of how it is possible to feel, breathe and live with inspiration.
This Helix Nebula, also known as the "Eye of God", appears to look like an eye from a distance. It's absolutely remarkable with it's beautiful circling colors and motion.

~Starry starry night.~ A stack of 100 frames, with stars aligned and the foreground frozen. It's just an exercise in "how many stars can we see?" . . . The answer: LOTS! . . . Stacking like this reduces random noise and increases the light of the stars, especially the smaller fainter ones. So it really lights up the sky. I wish our eyes could see it like this all the time. 🤩 .
