I'm terribly excited to share that Mark Gee is holding his first solo photo exhibition at the Carter Observatory from the 5th - 18th October. Plus he has published a book - The Art of Night. Click over to his facebook page to congratulate him.
He has also made the book as a free download on this facebook page.
Look for page 14 as James and I are silhouettes.
I was blown away to hear a Morepork at the top of Mount Vic.
I love New Zealand!
From Mount Vic we went to Lyall bay, Princess bay and then to the Red Rocks. You can read about our night out here
It was amazing how with each different place we went - we were able to see more stars- we were lucky to see some shooting stars. For me, looking at the shots Mark and Chris took especially of the Milky Way was magical.
One thing I noticed is how much I take where we live here at Cottage Tails for granted. We get to see stars really well without the glow of city lights. Rather blessed indeed.
I never dreamed we would be going 4wd at 11pm around to Red Rocks - 4wd at the best of time scares me but going in the pitch dark of a new moon , with men I met off the internet well lets say that is ticked off my bucket list. A memory I will keep for life.
Mark arranged us all to stand on some of the Rocks with the Milky Way in the front of us and took a silhouette shot - MAGIC! It is one of his shots in the exhibition and his book.
I'm looking forward to going to Mark's exhibition - I'm a big fan of his work.
