Sunset Reflections

Yesterday evening I had some fun wandering along the Swan River with my camera. I haven't been to this spot before, but first impressions are that I'll be back soon. A nice peaceful spot not too far from home with reasonably nice scenery. [caption id="attachment_909" align="alignnone" width="775"] Silhouettes and sunset…

Comet 117P

Last night I was inspired to take a photo of comet 117P after seeing some recent messages on the ASV comet list regarding it. Days earlier I had looked for available comets to photograph and missed this one. I was surprised by the length of 117P's tail. The comet is…

Under Cloudy Stars

I had good intentions tonight, even with the full moon, of (1) doing some supernova searching and (2) working on footage for a video idea I have. I spent an hour or so in the afternoon hobbling around setting the gear up. The clouds had other plans! The clouds are…

A broken ankle and a Valley of Stars

A couple of weekends ago I enjoyed making the most of my local surroundings, taking a long awaited trip to a nearby vantage point for some astrophotography of the Milky Way. I captured a few nice images, of which this, titled Valley of Stars, is probably the best: [caption id="attachment_842"…

James Price Point

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. See my photographs…

A tour around the Dampier Peninsula

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…

I’m on Vimeo!

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: Jupiter and Moon Occultation 18th Feb 2013 from…
