Comet Lovejoy- Adelaide- Cherry Gardens

Hello eveyone. This is my first post here and very happy to have captured Comet Lovejoy. The wind gusts and focus issues along with the clouds were giving me a few problems but managed to capture a few shots. Still discovering how to use my 500 D. I also posted this in the up comming event section among all the excitement.
