Check out my new video on Vimeo, it is of the solar eclipse experienced on the 10th May 2013. The eclipse was a partial solar eclipse as viewed from my location in Perth, even though up north at Newman it was an Annular solar eclipse.
While up at Broome recently I drove to and flew over James Price Point, the once-proposed site of a gas processing facility, a very controversial proposal. I found it very interesting to see this site first hand, and to photograph it as a Landscape Photographer first hand.
This weekend of 28th April 2013 I spent a great weekend in Broome, Western Australia. A highlight of the trip was a full day tour around the Dampier Peninsula with Kimberley Aviation to see the Horizontal Waterfalls, Cape Leveque, Cygnet Bay, tidal flows, etc.
The photo opportunities were plentiful and I now have a small selection available on my website: Dampier Peninsula Photography Gallery
It is probably not immediately obvious by looking at the content of my website, so I’ll put it here: I’m on Vimeo! My Vimeo feed includes various astrophotograhpy timelapse videos. The most recent video is the Occultation of Jupiter by The Moon:
Last weekend was great fun – went travelling down to Albany and stayed overnight Saturday in hope of capturing some Aurora!
There was no aurora but it’s always so great getting to see the south coast again. Such nice weather and spectacular scenery, particularly on this occasion.
During the night clouds and zero aurora activity conspired to prevent astrophotography of any kind, but in the following Sunday morning we had the opportunity to do about 30 minutes of photography running around the Gap and Natural Bridge area snapping a few pics before heading home.
Photographs here: Albany and South Coast
PS. Absolutely love the Canon 8-15mm F/4 Fishey! Such a perfect lens, proving its self over and over again.
Welcome to Roger Groom’s website.
For many years you will have been familiar with my old site containing lots of astronomy information and photography. That has now come to an end and I am in the process of starting a new site.
