Firmaments

Earth, sky, sun and space. Layer upon layer of firmaments. Us in the lowest layer. Looking out. Looking up. Wondering.

What we know about the firmaments is based alone upon what we can see and measure, with calculations involving really big numbers connecting the two. If you're into brain-stretching reading, the NY Times published a story today that says if we're right about what we think we know about the universe, then that knowledge will someday disappear and knowing that, casts some doubt about what we don't know that we don't know today.

I told you it was deep.

Awesome image! Sunsets are my favorite shots to take, and I love looking at how other photographers capture them as well.
