On the cover: Photographer Peter Ralston calls the cover photo of the Milky Way rising above a fleet of Maine windjammers "River of Heaven." He took the photo in Brooklin, where windjammers had gathered for an event. "They dropped anchor off the WoodenBoat School wharf," he said. "When it was clear that a few of them would have their sails up all night, I had the first gleam of the possibility of this photograph." Ralston rowed ashore and set up for the shot as darkness fell. "My intoxication over what I beheld was compounded as I realized that the Milky Way was directly over the assembled fleet. Icing on an exquisite cake, if you will," he said. "Wonderful laughter and singing from the boats rang through the anchorage, punctuated by the lilting cries of loons at both ends of the harbor. It was, in all, a scene of surreal beauty. I knew I had found the perfect title when I learned that a shared Chinese and Japanese term for the Milky Way is "river of heaven." We selected this image for our special 30th anniversary cover because we think being on the water in Maine is as close to heaven as you can get. Ralston has donated a limited-edition master print of the image worth $2,000 to benefit Penobscot Island Air, which has been impacted by a recent accident (no injuries). Through the end of July 2017 any additional sales of "River of Heaven" that reference PIA will result in 20% of the retail price going to help PIA regain their footing.
