Kew Gardens - Christmas Lights 2015

While visiting the UK for Christmas this year - we took a trip to see the Kew Gardens Christmas Lights walk together with dad and my brother and his family.

While waiting in the car park for the second car - I was able to take this shot of the Thames - this is from the Kew Gardens car park at Brentwood Gate:

We then headed into the park for the walk.

One favourite is the lit palm house:

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.

Introduction between a norweigan fjord horse and a halfling to see if they could share a paddock. The introduction went well - they now keep each other company in the paddock every day
