Storms Down South by StrawBeth Storms Down South by StrawBeth
A few weeks ago we watched the horizon light up with lightening flashes from a storm way over Hobart, down past the mountains 200 kilometers south of us. You Can just make the tail end of the storm out as the light patch just above the skyline inbetween the trees.

This is a half-hour exposure from our little patch of decking by the back door. The blue and red pixels are misfired because of heat fluctuations being misread as light input over that time. Maybe I'll remove them. At some point. ;)

Stars are blurred because the earth spins. You should hold onto something.

This is genuinelyy azing. I've always wanted to do a really long exposure of the night sky - actuallly really brings out the bigness of space, that we're spinning amongst all those things. Somehow, the contrast between the still trees and the blurred stars makes me feel small.

I like the storm red, too. :)Xx

It is an awesome thought that the sky is twirling in spirals above our unsuspecting heads, everything can start to look so fixed in place sometimes, you know?

I'll have to keep an eye out on your gallery to see what you get done! I meant to do this sort of thing for ages too, only got around to it by accident really! Hopefully more accidental situations will throw themselves at me soon :ahoy:

Glad you liked it! briefest glimps of the dance de la planets.
