What can be better than finding a nice gap in the tree tops point the camera up, kick back and enjoy the views?
I hope you enjoy this brief time lapse of our Galaxy in motion framed by the Gum trees of the southern New South Wales coast 😉

The World at Night - TWAN

Pleiades, Venus and Orion above the Pacific.
It was really great to see these jewels in the sky and and reflected in the wet sand just before the morning twilight. Yuri Beletsky was behind the rocks a few hundred metres away 😁

The Observatories

in June 2011 I was very lucky to attend the inaugural STARMUS festival on Tenerife and observe with the largest single-mirror optical telescope on the planet – 10-metre GranTeCan. After spending five days at STARMUS listening to and chatting with the great astrophysicists and space legends I decided to dedicate more time to astronomy science and film the observatories around the world.

Liquid Light Show

During our camping holiday at Wilsons Promontory National Park (Victoria, Australia) in December I noticed a glimpse of bioluminescence in the surf. However, the weather was not favourable for night sky photography and I knew I had to return at the earliest opportunity and photograph this phenomenon under the stars. I waited for the next New Moon in January 2013 and ventured out to Squeaky Beach at night. The blue surf started to appear when it became dark and it was amazing to see the blue sparkle as I walked in the water.
