And We’re Back…….

The fire started nicely

It’s been awhile since my last post.  I must apologize to everyone about that.  With traveling back to Whistler, torrential downpours and pressing university deadlines I haven’t been out and about all that much.  The weather seems to have cleared up, I am back on track with uni and  I have a new camera so I am back in the game and hopefully over the next few days I’ll get out and get some new shots of Whistler.

B& W Bonfire

Before I get back to Whistler though I want to remember my last night in Scone, my hometown.  We had a little bonfire to catch up with many old friends.  Apart from being a little cold it was a great night (the bonfire made the cold bearable).  Lots of beer, food and chat.  So much so, that it was pretty quickly 6am and the sun was rising.

It was a great way to end a fantastic trip.

Another attempt at a star trail...Hopefully soon I'll nail the technique

I tried a new technique out here....really tried to emphasize the moon in the background.

  1. Moon looks great,James – how did you do that? And the star trails – impressive.

  2. Moon is certainly distinct – how did you do that? And the star trails – impressive.

    • Thanks Louise. The moon pic is a couple of different shots focusing one one the moon and one on the fire scene and then combining the two!
