… pathways into the unknown … pathways to forever … all alone on a tiny planet that seems so vast to us. There are scenes which so emphasize the beauty and vastness of space time that you just keep coming back to them … I could spend forever in the moment when and where I took this shot and be drawn to explore whatever lies beyond … or perhaps just remain here and be in awe and wonder.

For more than four billion years earth has been evolving, and sometime within the first one hundred million years after the solar system coalesced, earth was struck by a massive astronomical body about the size of Mars in what is now considered by scientists as a very violent collision which may have vaporized both the earth and the impactor body … read more at: https://www.theverge.com/2016/9/12/12879766/moon-planetary-collision-theory-earth-impact .

And in the beauty of the sky and sea.
