Speaking of how cameras can’t do beautiful sunrises justice, this isn’t just a photo of a black piece of paper. Or a dark room. I didn’t forget to remove my lens cap.

This is a photo taken of the clear night sky in the middle of July, and what you’re not seeing, is the Milky Way.

Many guests to the area are absolutely astounded that you can see more than the basic constellations without a telescope on a clear night, much less the mesmerizing shimmer of our galaxy.

Those who hail from large metro areas especially have never seen the stars like you can see them here at Rowleys Bay. The light pollution in their hometowns is too great.
