16 hours

16 hours

We arrived home from the clinic today with our new son - this was taken 16 hours after he was born. Each time I look at this image I am amazed at how much expression and communication I can sense just from that half open eye. A wonderful feeling. Today really has been the perfect day for Mum, Dad and big sister too :) Perhaps not the best technical shot (very hard to hand-hold a macro lens in low light) - but - that said - I don't think I could find a better shot to express just how I feel right now.

Femsj√łen sky
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.

Friends?
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
