|Was trying to find all sorts of things to come up with for this challenge. Wanted to try and do my first 24 hour challenge. Tried all sorts of things, and everything turned out bad. My wife and I worked hard at different ideas and nothing worked. So later on in the evening we went outside and were watching some fireworks. The sky was so clear and beautiful, we looked up and saw the big dipper. My wife was like "Umm isn't that 7 stars" I said "Holy Lucky 7 Batman". Ran and got my camera and took 2 shots as it was 10:30pm. Put it on the computer and liked what I saw. I had the chance to remove some of the other stars, but I felt it added a bit to the shot. The 7 brightest stars make up the Big Dipper and that was good enough for me. Hope everyone likes. And thanks to my wife for all her patience today.
