Went out with a friend last night to shoot a bit of astro. We went to Norah Head lighthouse on the Central Coast and I managed to get this despite battling the light from the lighthouse. Really like how it turned out.
It was nice being out under the stars again. I love the solitude and the perspective you get when you’re out shooting, particularly the moments between shots, standing there, staring up at the stars. It really makes you realise just how small a part of the universe we are. And how lucky we are to be here at all.
It was quite a cold, rainy day today but the clouds parted for just long enough for a lovely sunset and for me to take a few shots. About an hour later, it started raining again! Was perfect timing I guess.
Some photos from Squid’s Ink jetty in Belmont last night. It was a really beautiful, vibrant sunset and the dusk seemed to last for a long time afterwards as well, with the lovely hues intermingling with the clouds.
The clouds were moving quite quickly so I tried a couple of quite long exposures (over three minutes each) at the end to try and capture some movement in the scene. I like how they turned out, I think they’re some of my favourite photos of the year so far.
Beautiful sunset over the lake at Belmont yesterday evening. There were some very interesting cloud formations and at one stage a plane went across as well, leaving a trail in its wake. It was a lovely sunset.
I decided to shoot a couple of panoramas to capture a bit of a different, wider perspective. Panoramas can be quite tricky to stitch with water but these ones came out well and they work well with the other shots.
Beautiful foggy morning in Kotara a few days ago. I was on the train as the fog rolled in and jumped off at the next stop at Kotara to take a few shots. I like how they came out. They have a bit of a filmic look to them, particularly in black and white.
The sun Sets fire to the sky Like a dragon Scorching the horizon
The setting sun as seen from Stockton. Most of the sunset wasn’t that special but the sky turned a lovely orange for a few moments just before it started to disappear. I was lucky enough to get this shot just as it did.
I went with a friend to shoot some astrophotography at Catherine Hill Bay recently. It’s one of the few spots near Newcastle that’s almost entirely dark, with very little light pollution, so it’s great for the stars and the Milky Way.
I was a little worried it was going to cloud over before the shoot but luckily it stayed very clear and we managed to capture the Milky Way in all its beauty. We also caught the moon rising – it was so bright it almost looks like a sunrise!
