Southern Cross

Palmerston North, New Zealand

Caption: The sky was perfectly clear last night and I was out trying to catch a glimpse of either of the comets again (Panstarrs & Lemmon) I didn't see either of them but did get a great view of the stars. The Cross is created by the four bright stars in a diamond shape near the top of the image and the two at the bottom right are Alpha & Beta Centauri, known as The Pointers. I have increased the brightness to make the stars slightly more visible.

* * * NEWSFLASH * * *I DID IT!! I am now the proud owner of a Canon SX40 and am thoroughly enjoying discovering it's features, especially the greater zoom capacity! I grew up in New Plymouth, New Zealand, but have lived the past almost two decades in Palmerston North, where I sign for Deaf students.I am a "just for fun" photographer who enjoys getting out and appreciating nature in all it's different seasons and beauty. I feel God has given me an eye to appreciate His work around us.I really enjoy having a place like Wunderground to share my love of nature shots and to enjoy all of your fantastic shots as well.You can be sure, if I'm going away anywhere, my camera will be in my bag somewhere!
