A Curious Seagull

A Curious Pigeon

A seagull on the pier in Santa Cruz, California.

This was taken early one morning on a sunrise photowalk with Marcus. It was so early I almost slept in and had to hurry to catch up with him!

Star Trails in Utah

Star trails around the North Star, Polaris in Utah, United States.

This is a long exposure shot of 930 seconds shot at f/8. The night was fairly clear but cloud crept in during the long exposure. It was a glorious night. We were up in the mountains and away from most light pollution apart from the huge hotel 200m away to the right but you have to have some comfort, right?

Next time I’m going to try stacking shorter exposures using StarStaX and I have to avoid “bright” foreground objects. This photo was pushed too much and shows too much noise. 🙁

All Dressed up for the Show


A model poses for the camera. She was dressed warmly but I still remember it was a roasting day. How she kept her cool is beyond me! Another shot from the same day is Red Heart.
