First Day Back

Ok so today was the first day of semester 2 uni!!! -_- took this picture a few weeks ago but it definitely reflects my feelings during my lectures hahaha, oh well I have Urban Challenge this weekend so I’m pretty keen for that (Venturer version of the amazing race).




I took a picture of spaaaccceeeeeeee!!!!!

It was a successssssss

Ok so eventually the clouds parted and the night sky was absolutely breathtaking, will definitely come back and do it again!! This photo was done with a 30s shutter and ISO 3200, plus the greatness of the Southern Hemisphere made the sky infinitely better than you plebs in the North 😉

As I’m still away from home I don’t get to make my sky trail photo yet… but will tomorrow!!


Leyburn Observatory Camp

Ok so I’ll be away for the weekend, camping of course! (Man I do way to much of that).

We’ve set this camp up so it’s in line with the new moon, + Leyburn is pretty much far away from everything so we wont have much light pollution = fabulous photos!!!

This is a picture of the last time i took a photo of night time, at Operation Archer in March this year, see the aeroplane? I think that shutter was on 30s, other details I have no idea.

Glen Rock Hiking

Last week I went with some buddies to get some hiking done out at Glen Rock State Forest 🙂 It was pretty lax in regards to routes, first day we followed the creek for about 11km and found an old abandoned stock yard (for cattle). On the second day we set out to actually reach the summit of Glen Rock, we were about 250m away when my friend chickened out (it was a rather death defying ascent). So yeah… these are my favourite photos I took, the first is following the river and we had some awesome cloud cover + sunlight at the same time, and the other I took at the highest point we reached, the view of the valley beyond. I like how a high contrast creates drama.
