My kids have not seen this movie yet, but when I stumbled upon this song and played it for them it became an instant classic. Mr. Ives seems to be a somewhat forgotten treasure of Americana, remembered more as a snowman than the walking, singing folk library he was in life and continues to be even after.

"On September 28th, my wife and I, as serious amateur photographers, wanted to visit what we call "Little Finland near Whitney Pockets. We camped at Whitney Pockets with our camping trailer so that we would be close to Little Finland for an early start the next morning. We wanted to photograph some stars and our campfire lit up the rock formations surrounding the camp site creating a unique look and feel. I wanted to capture the Milky Way and the feeling of desert solitude. My photo is the one of the Milky Way over a Whitney Pockets camp spot."
