This was shot at the B&B, a lodge, located on a hill in Nelson. At midnight, when I turned off the light inside the house, the uncountable twinkling stars all over the sky would become even more clear. For the first time in my life, I saw so many stars; for the first time, I practiced taking pictures of stars - no need to go far, but just taking shots in the yard. For the first time, I desperately wished that there had been someone to teach me how to photograph the stars...and even to have shared what I saw. I know there must be some skills to take better shots of stars, but I tried anyway.

Since the windows of the house are huge, when I lay down on the bed, I found the stars were just ahead so close to me, and surrounded me. I kept watching the stars, and became sleepless, and couldn't help thinking of my favorite book "The Little Prince"(French: Le Petit Prince, a novel written by a French aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, 1943) and the words quoted from the book, “If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that's enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars."
