4. Starry Starry night skies of the Northern Cape, where the heavens are revealed.

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." – Carl Sagan. • Last night was one of the most incredible shooting experiences of my life. Nestled among the arid plains of the Northern Cape is SKA or the Square Kilometer Array, once completed it will form the backbone of the most ambitious instrument ever built by our species. Standing amongst the dishes, under moon and star light for the first time in a long time I felt the unbridled optimism of a Hloni who used to fly his fathers shoes around the garden pretending they were spaceships. • #wanderlust #thecreatorclass #southafrica #letsgosomewhere #liveauthentic #lifeofadventure #justgoshoot #huffpostgram #artofvisuals #mobilemag #neverstopexploring #vscosouthafrica #vsco #livefolk #chasingemotions #peoplescreatives #streetdreamsmag #visualsgang #visualvoicemag #exploretocreate #mighty_killers #supreme_nightshots #africa #astrophotography #sonyimages #sonyimages #thisissouthafrica #stars #astro #natgeospace #universetoday
