The hills have eyes, their trees have lives, disjointed like a hero
I took the photos above this past weekend while camping on a friend's land near Looneyville, West Virginia. The trip wasn't really a "photography" trip so I didn't concentrate on taking many photos. I'm kind of happy with a few of the above shots, though. My friend owns the farmhouse in the photo, but it was so hot inside the house that we decided to sleep on a mattress under a blanket of stars (hence the mattress in front of the old building). I'm not going to wax poetically about how nice it was to look up at clear sky with no light pollution. I do wonder, though, how many people go through their lives without spending a night looking up at the stars.
