A Few Photos

Last week’s Photo of the Week was a choice of several, so I thought I would share the ones that fell by the sidelines.

Top left is the constellation Orion

Bottom is a tug showing what he can do with a spray of water. A pity I didn’t get the two tugs at once, they were spraying in unison.


Photo of the Week 2015 – Week 27

I very nearly used a seagull until I noticed that I used one a couple of weeks ago. I am hoping to get better shots of the moon very soon. A friend of mine, Steve, (Please go follow him, he is new to photography and I think he is doing really well) has told me about an adaptor that I can fix to my telescope along with a threaded barlow lens (telescope fitting) which will allow me to use the telescope as a lens. The excitement is real when I think of the shots I could get of Saturn, of Jupiter, and the moon. I remember seeing Jupiter for the first time in my old telescope – I left it out too long and it got rusty, but Steve, being the fantastic friend that he is, gave me a new body for the scope – the first time I saw Jupiter, I thought I could see stars near it, and I shrieked like a 4 year old when I realised that what i was looking at was four of Jupiter’s moons. If I stared hard, I could also see the big red storm as well, but it looked dark rather than red.

This moon shot is one of my favourite from the last week.
