The latest Yosemite star trails...

Here are a few more images from my trip with Leah...including the promised favorite star trails shot of the night.  :)

First, here's the cabin where we stayed.  (It was supposed to be a canvas tent cabin, but we got a surprise free upgrade to this!  A gift from the Lord!)

And here is my favorite star-trail shot of the evening, with El Capitan in the foreground (can you see the climbers here and there? I was glad I'm not them...).  :)  This was a 25-minute exposure.

I'll leave you with a great Bebo Norman song that I think about when I look at mountains and stars and think of my Creator...hope you enjoy it now.

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
Of the mountains I can't climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
Of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
Of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You

God, my God, let Mercy sing
Her melody over me
God, right here all I bring
Is all of me
'Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
The Lover I need to save me
'Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
So hold me now
