Star Trails

My Star Trails from 14th March 2018, and a 3 hours shoot. 

The regularly spaced red dots in the top quarter are a helicopter flying past. The orange shooting star in the top right was a surprise on the image (I missed it - must have napped then!). I was hoping for twice as long but the clouds caused me problems (they're the reasons for the patchy trails, I think) completely covering the sky just after 11.00 pm and stopping the camera from taking any more shots (no light!). I've always wanted to be able to do these and it's so exciting to have my own thanks to an awesome Olympus Tough camera that goes underwater, takes great shots, fits in my pocket and does this! AMAZING!

Blueberry Ash

I have a lovely Blueberry Ash in my garden that provides lovely shelter and feed for birds. Pigeons nest in it often. Rosellas and Currawongs seem to take shifts with their feedings, which seems awfully polite :)
