Ethereal Selena

Iím currently running another nightscape photography workshop for the photography art centre I have taught at for the past 28 years.

Last Tuesday I met my class in Boorowa at sunset. As I arrived in town I observed a lot of smoke coming from crop stubble burn off. We went to watch the setting Sun then looked for the moon and comet Pons Brookes. We soon lost any hope of shooting the comet but the 3.5% moon pushed through the thick ethereal smoke.

Beautiful shot Joe!

I saw the tinniest slither of the moon with the setting sun the other day as it slid behind the mountains between Lithgow and Bathurst, it looked stunning. Of course by the time I even grabbed my camera sans tripod it was too low behind the mountain to capture a shot, a beautiful golden slither at that.
