Well, I’ve been absent from this blog for a while. I have been fairly active with the camera but haven’t really put too much time into the social media side of things. The summer skies are on their way with slightly warmer nights, and with my new shift pattern, I get more chances of catching a clear sky on my time off.
Here’s a few from the past couple of months.
Star watching in Snowdonia
Wind farms on the Denbigh Moors
South Stack light house
Penmon light house
The ISS pass over Gwaenysgor transmitters
The eclipse, taken from a moving boat
Summer is here and it’s the best time to view the Milky way in the UK. Luckily we have been blessed with some brilliant clear skies.
Penmon Point, Anglesey.
The weather again was looking good for an evening at Aled Isaf with the tent. A few shots from here.
Me and my wife Laura headed over to Madeira for our summer holiday and took advantage of a sunset and stargazing excursion. Unfortunately it was a full moon so the Milky way wasn’t as visible but the views were amazing. Sitting at 1818 meters, Pico Arieiro is the highest peak on the island and you sit above the clouds. I’d love to go back there on a moonless night!
The radar dome.Back home, I went for a drive to Llyn Geirionydd. Another moonless night and 19 degrees at 1 am was perfect for taking time out to marvel at the wonders of the universe.
Took a drive over the moors home and thought I’d try this shot. I’d seen a few previously from America and thought this worked pretty well.
And one from the other night. The ISS pass. Taken behind Abergele at an old lookout tower. 6 shots stitched together.
Cheers for looking!
