“That Night in Broome Made Me Feel at Home in the Universe”

On my last night in Broome I ventured out to photograph the stars with my best friend. Our interest in astrology had piqued spending time with local star expert Greg Quicke on board the Kimberley Quest.

Starting in town we were amazed to discover that the Milky Way was visible from Town Beach, even with nearby lights that can ordinarily wash out the stars.

Without too much effort we were able to capture the incredible sights above us before packing the cameras away to enjoy the moment.

I can never get used to the novelty of seeing a blanket of stars above me, making me feel both infinitely small and yet part of something large and powerful.

Western Australia makes me feel proud to be Australian, and that night in Broome made me feel at home in the universe.
