Good friends are like stars

Starry Night
20 sec | f/2.8 | ISO 3200 | 7mm

“Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there”, an old saying goes.

A Milky Way shot to open the photography year 2020. Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 7-14mm F/2.8. Image specs 20 sec (camera on a tripod) @ f/2.8 , ISO 3200 and 7mm focal length.

Postprocessing of the RAW in Lightroom Classic – mainly using haze reduction and increasing clarity in parts of the Milky Way, plus some overall sharpness masking and noise reduction.

Wish you a great Thursday!

  1. I really do love this quote because it’s true. I only have a few friends that I don’t talk to often because of our very busy lives but I always know that if we are in a difficult situation, we’re always there at the drop of a hat. It’s a great blessing.

  2. Marcus, this is a spectacular photograph!
    I love also the saying, it’s so true.
    Happy New Year! May 2020 will be the best year for you and your loved ones.

    1. Thanks, Kaya, your kind words are heartwarming! Happy New Year to you too, may it be a wonderful one for you and yours! Looking forward to your beautiful nature photographs! Marcus

  3. Funny that you posted that saying today. Yesterday as I was cleaning and organizing my leftover Christmas papers and cards I came across a birthday card from a dear friend with that exact saying. It touched me as I read it again.
