Through My Lens

Saw the plane coming whilst out photographing the blue sky moon. 

And one from later in the evening.

Day out around the Romney Marsh with my mum and dad. My goodness, it was a cold day.

My auntie on her wedding day. She’s only been with her fella for 24 years. Glad they didn’t rush into anything, lol.

My baby brother’s wedding. He scrubbed up well and his wife looked absolutely stunning. They both learnt to jive for their first dance.

Day trip to Chatham Dock Yard.

Bit of experimentation in the garden. Long exposure and a torch. :o)

I haven’t uploaded anything to here for AGES! Here are a few shots of the moon from September 2012 to February 2013.

Myself and my best friend took her little boy to the Rare Breeds Centre in Woodchurch today. It was a fantastic few hours - we got a little wet, my neck was very stiff but we all had fun.

Here are some photos of the butterflies in the butterfly house.

100 photos, 18mm focal length, ISO 200, f3.5, 30 second exposures. Processed the RAW files first, then stacked using Registax. Finally, processed again.

I was outside trying to photograph meteors. I saw a few but typically, the camera was always pointing in the wrong direction. However, whilst out there, the ISS passed over and I did manage to photograph one meteor (very tiny, at the bottom of the photo, to the left of the tree).

I had taken lots of 30 second exposure images in one place so thought I’d try and made my first star trail image. The photo here is 65 stacked images (used Registax for the first time). I then processed the photo to try to reduce ‘noise’ and bring out the detail a little more. It has taken a few attempts to process this image but I am quite chuffed with myself.

Beautiful blue sky with a few wispy clouds right above but rumbles of thunder in the distance.

3rd August 2012

Yet another glorious moony night. Started off with some clouds so had the wonderful atmospheric shots then it cleared. Hurrah.

A quick Moony!

Took a few shots of the moon with clouds building. Fairly long exposures (between 0.8 and 2 seconds). It’s now pissing down!
