    The Fourth of July 2020 (actually July 5) had a full moon rising. The Covid pandemic was still raging and had limited most group photo activities. This was my first attempt at plotting a moonrise using Photo Ephemeris. I got lucky and found the approximate location to capture the moon in between the arches. The clouds made for a spooky effect.

    They say the best camera to have is the camera that is on you and though I have a great DSLR there are instances and circumstances that the pocket rocket just does the trick. This image was shot right after a rain shower which gives a depth and reflectively to the shot. The picture was mildly edited using contrast and sharpened with a little color saturation to bring out the tones. Camera: iPhone 13Pro @ 26mmISO:640FStop: 1.5Shutter:1/40s

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    It's a famous road for Golden Poplars, but I wanted to capture the Milky way passing over trees that have lost their leaves. it was early evening, but the Milky Way was already high up, so I quickly took some photos and returned to Sydney.

    Title or Location: Tacking Point Lighthouse, Port Macquarie
    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha
