Some Images from Kent

Not been doing much photography recently, working on an IT contract which takes me away from home and eats up spare time. However, we spent a week in Kent early in August, a lovely part of the world we’d not visited before. Some nice wildlife at the cottage we were staying at, Moorhens and Butterflies….

Aurora trip – the vid (at long last)

Since I got back from the aurora trip, one project I’d been working on was to have a go at a timelapse video of the aurora. This was the  first time I’d tried a timelapse, learned a bunch of interesting things which I can incorporate when I next have a go, but here it is…

Fourth night of Aurora – 12th Feb

This was a night I was looking forward to – there was a chance that a solar flare would pass close by the earth, leading to spectacular displays. The satellite cloud imagery said that the skies should be clear from around 8PM. As I sat on a frozen lake amongst gently falling snowflakes just before…

Third Night of Aurora – 11th Feb

The night of the 10th Feb had been a washout, with thick cloud making it pointless to go out – we’d been forced to stay in and drink beer. Which is not as good as it sounds once you know the cost of beer in Sweden 🙁 The day of the 11th had been one…

Aurora – second night

These images are from the night of Saturday 9th Feb. Not so “full on” a display as Friday 8th, in fact to the naked eye it did not look that impressive. However the camera’s ability to record images in almost total darkness continues to impress, and when I got back to examine the nights shots…

Aurora

Weather and solar forecasts were both good. Wrapped up warm, packed all the gear and walked down to Lake Tornetrask in the dark – a lot easier when you know where you’re going. Turned left at the snowman and set up by the lake edge. It had been completely clear with loads of stars as…

Pentax User Day Out, Castleton

I hadn’t been out for a while, and was keen to go on a “Pentax User” day out in the Peak District at the end of January. The meet was in Castleton at 9AM and I took the opportunity to catch the dawn from the top of Mam Tor. Conditions were not best, the cloud…

Padley Gorge Nov

Starting to get back into photography again, the light was rubbish yesterday, which just meant that I needed to seek out different types of subject. Headed down to Padley Gorge for some autumn colours and flowing water shots, passed a happy hour or two climbing over slippery rocks and trying not to drop delicate equipment,…
