Catching up Astronomy, Nature and Still-life

I’ve been up to all sorts of things recently but I’ve never had the time to post about them here.

I’ve been “messing with the universe” for one thing. This involves pointing the camera at the night sky and seeing what happens. The simple answer is much as expected. If you don’t take it too seriously (I haven’t) then you end up with fairly mediocre results like I have.

and Jupiter – you can just see the weather bands.

Since then I’ve been to the Spinnies nature reserve.

…. and I’ve even been doing a bit of Still Life work for the first time – this was fun but it took me nearly and hour to set up and get the lighting right. Very seasonal!
