Love the starry skies!
The skies are real stars. Thanks, Dale.
I always appreciate your night skies. Was the knight in an actual jousting contest?
The Knight was jousting. I updated the last image. I forgot to add Neptune. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Enjoyed. The night pics are awesome. Where and when was the pic of the Knight taken? Just curious. It reminds me of a dinner theatre production I went to long ago.
There was a Renaissance festival this past weekend south of Santa Fe. Thanks, Jeff.
Ah, got it, thank you. Welcome, Tim.
I love the knight amid the night sky photos. Thank you for the star maps, Tim!
It is partly cloudy up here tonight, and dry, except for what I think is a leaking water line from the well out back. Got some work to do.
You are welcome, Lavinia.
Yes. Thanks, JYP.
Fun! I went to a Ren Faire a few years ago. Did you dress up?
Heck no. I wore my funky cowboy hat.
The horses in the days of knights wore heavy armor to protect the head, eyes, body and part of the legs too. They had to be strong and tall to carry the weight. There were a few shorter horses in the 14-15 hands range, but were solidly built to wear the armor. The armor was all custom made for the horses.
O/T: It appears my vote in NM matters. I have received campaign literature in the mail plus TV campaign ads for the NM governor’s race. (It’s a streaming thing.)
All votes count in NM. Thanks, David.
Knights and nights. Epic. Love all the detail on your night sky ones. That you can identify so much. So few can these days.
Like the Knight, I bow to your starry nights!
The night sky is always impressive… but when you begin understanding (labeling) what it is you are seeing, the magnitude is overwhelming. When I saw Betelguese listed, my heart sped up a bit as it seems more mythical than actually something I could see/feel. Great post.
I’m figuring out more of the stars in the sky. We have a lot of light pollution so it’s nice I can get the stars and planets that I can. Thanks, Randall.
Wow, look at all those stars.
There are many more, but the light pollution blocks the view.
Yes, but your sky seems a lot clearer than mine.
It’s amazing and always weird to see the planets lined up like this.
The planets like to be in line. Thanks, Susan.
Starry starry night, or knight.
Great shots! Love the knight!
And your night skies are magical!
Cool shots and the Ren Fest is here every weekend until Halloween.
We’re not very Ren. Only once a year here. Thanks, Teri.
Oh how I love these planet photos with the planets outlined for us. Thanks Timothy.
You are welcome, Jet. It’s fun to see what I can see in the sky.
Thanks for the planet line up and your wonderful shots Timothy❣️❣️
Brilliant skies and a knight thrown in for good measure ..
Night’s not right without a knight? Thanks, Julie.
Got it! 🙂
That is an incredible horse – gonna be some sore thighs after that right… and maybe a sore chest as well depending on how good he is with the lance. Can’t imagine what that event was like back then – the rather controlled impacts I witness at our local renaissance faire are shocking enough.
Back in the day, the locals, their farms and the fields fared far worse than the knights who pretty much destroyed everything in their path. The chivalric romances about the chivalrous knights and chivalric codes and the idea that knights should act with honor were written to try and get the knights to behave themselves. Don Quijote was the perfect parody of how knights were supposed to act with honor and chivalry. Thanks, Brian.
Amazing photos Tim. Your night shots are superb.
