If you're not familiar with Pretty Palettes, it's a design challenge created by the illustrious Erin Prais-Hintz. She selects an image, creates a color palette, and curates a selection of beads that can be purchased at your local Michaels. At the end of the month, there's a reveal!
For February, she selected a fisheye photograph by Petr Horálek called, "A Sky Portal in New Zealand". It's a really striking image. It shows an airglow that is surrounded by a peripheral landscape peopled by his sister and an acquaintance. It's funny that Erin selected this image and thought of me. Ligonier actually has an airglow observatory! The last time I trekked out to see it, there were swarms of bees and it looked pretty abandoned, but it is still a cool landmark.
