    Arrow Astro-Photography of the Australian Night Sky

    Just some astro-photography I've been playing around with...

    nightsky: just a still shot of the southern cross and two pointers
    nightsky2: southern cross again, with shutters open I gradually changed the focus (ala David Malin)
    nightsky3: a starwheel around the southern celestial pole
    nightsky4: the Moon rising over my house, it almost looks like a nighttime sun

    and some underwater ones....though my woeful scanner is having a hard time capturing them properly, the brightness function on it just doesn't seem to be working properly.

    underwater1: a flounder hiding itself in the sand amidst a bed of seagrass (I got right up to within a few inches of it before it eventually took off in an explosion of sand)
    underwater2: a puffer fish (the lackwit of the sea) swimming away

    Great stuff, SURT! I am particulary fascinated by the underwater pics... Have you anymore to share?

    Where I live, the ocean is too cold for exploring... (well, too cold for me ), but I doubt there is anything of outstanding beauty to behold in these waters, anyway... atleast nothing like you have there, down under!
    "Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her:
    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." - Goethe
