Photo was taken in a single exposure by Jeff Dai on the site of the Yaqing Temple, Sichuan, China. I want to be here right now and for the rest of my life.....really makes you wonder about space and all there is out there.

My kids are dying to see it but not sure if age appropriate for an 8 and 9 year old.

On the contrary, if it sparks their imagination...

How cool would it have been for you if your dad took you to see 2001 A Space Odyssey when it first opened? Just creating memories. Im not sure if its age appropriate but if the rating has anything to do with language, I doubt they'll remember that...theyll focus on the adventure if thats what you focus on.

Yeah....I thought the same thing when I saw it. I figured it was a multiple exposure stitched together, but it is a single exposure which tells me that what you see here is what you see there....I can't even begin to say how awestruck I would be.

No idea what particular filter he used, but I would imagine it looks similar to the naked eye from the site he was at....4000 ft above sea level.

Wow, where is that? Looks amazing. The view where I am is pretty beautiful at night, but this and the other photos.

According to the guy that took it, Thomas Zimmer:



It was at the west coast of the island Sylt, North Sea. I was there from 4pm to 8pm. Yes, 4 hours. It was November and sunset was at 4:30pm. It was ice cold, with a heavy wind blowing from the sea. I made several great photos until it was getting dark. There was no moon at this time and later on the milky way appeared in it's glory. I shot until I was literally unable to use my fingers any more. Stupid me, I forgot my gloves.
Finally, I decided to leave the place. Batteries were nearly empty, I was hungry and frozen. So I packed the camera stuff, and made my way back to the car, which was a long walk in the dark.
At that time it was pitch black. I walked over the dunes and took the wooden stairs down. I took a last look back. An amazing view showed up. The Milky Way was right above the stairs. But I was so exhausted, hungry and cold. I almost wanted to give up, but then I made a last effort, and tried a final shot.
It looked good, but something was missing there. I first tried to light up the stairs with the flashlight. Looked better, but not what I wanted. It needed a human being in the image. Unfortunately, nobody was there for miles except me. So i set up the self timer, fired it and run up the stairs with the flashlight on. On top, I shut off the light and tried to stand still for 30 seconds, the exposure time.
I did not notice that the shutter opened while I was running with the flashlight on. So the final photo had the last stairs illuminated. Later on, in the hotel room, I noticed my fault. But it looked good. The light lead the viewers eye to the small person under the stars. At that time I had the strong feeling that I've got something very special.

Hard to imagine getting that shot with so much light pollution.

Take a look at his flikr page from the link I posted...pretty damn good. 30 sec exposure, and that seems to be the norm on his pics from his page.

Just think that is over a trillion stars and millions of planets, with beings looking at us and thinking the same thing!
