When I was a child, I read a story about a beautiful and bright star called ‘Karfunkelstern’. In German, ‘Stern’ is the word for ‘star’ and ‘funkeln’ means ‘to glint’ or ‘to twinkle’ – it’s a twinkle star. And while the story & the star were entirely made up I’ve always had a fondness for the word. I hope these images will bring back good memories of beautiful nights under the twinkly star-filled sky for you as well!
