“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
― Marcus Aurelius

Week Three is upon us! This week has seen some fascinating weather across the country. We had random hailstorms that sent cars spinning into fences and hedges within just a few seconds of covering the group. Followed by thunder, lightning, sleet and some gale force winds during the night. Throughout the country there was flooding, even some Thundersnow. (A word we seemed to have made up to describe how it snows during a thunderstorm instead of rains…)

The evenings have been cold, windy and rainy. But this evening gave perfect conditions for capturing the night sky above where we live which is currently (thanks to the developers) without any light polluting street lamps. It also gave me a chance to try star photography – never tried it before and it’s on my list of things to achieve this year! So forgive the amateur-ness…

We braved the -1 degree c temperatures and the frost which was settling on the car even fairly early on and headed up to the park which overlooks the house. It’s a great vantage point, and completely pitch black at the moment. It’s also not completely open yet hence the random bits of scaffolding in the shots.

I had to upgrade my Remote Shutter due to the new camera not having the relevant slot anymore! Quite bemusing, but it seems Sony quietly did away with it without telling anyone. However, remote shutters are amazing and this one is no exception if you’re in the market.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00KCCLQAY?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00
