I woke up at 6am and looked out of the window expecting to see cloud but no the gods were smiling. It was quite a sight and the moon very bright, bright enough to read newsprint, but as the eclipse progressed it became quite dark. But a beautiful sight and it was one to see. I am pleased to have photographed it.

About astrophotographer

astrophotographer

I am very keen on astrophotography, atmospherics and nature photography.The passion for photography has been with me for 60 odd years and is still as strong as ever.My first camera was a 127 format given to me when I was 8yrs old, my father showing us how to develop film, in the bathtub, needless to say it became stained much to my mothers annoyance.I guess my profession, Radiography, was a natural way to combine taking pictures with a hobby, most radiographers in my training years had cameras so we all took photos and compared them, always striving to outdo each other.I have always had an interest in Infra-Red photography and we used to play around with IR film in the B&W days, of course we have advanced so much in the digital world of IR I had my camera converted for IR only...it was a bonus as the exposures are as if it was a white light camera. Fast shutter speeds and the resulting images are sometime bad but mostly intriguing. A surprise celebration awaited me at work the other day, to mark my 50 years in Radiography, a long time in one profession, but an enjoyable time and would I choose the same path in life, yes I would. I have met many wonderful people even though their time on this planet was limited, they have been a person I will remember fondly.At last I have acquired a Canon 5D Mkii. It has been a dream of mine for a while to have a full frame digital camera. The wide angle lenses are great and cover the 180 degrees I have longed for when photographing the aurora. The definition if the photos is quite amazing and I am very pleased with the results. Keep an eye out for some more photos.
