After basically pulling an all nighter last night taking images and conducting a night sky photography workshop, I woke up at lunchtime today to discover a very pleasant surprise. I have been awarded my 5th Daily Deviation for my image "Taste The Rainbow"
Huge thanks must go to
for suggesting the image and the legendary Nancy
for featuring it as a DD
It is quite surprising to me how much this image has been accepted by the public, both on here and elsewhere on the net. For a long time I hesitated to even upload it as I thought it was just another standard "Milkyway Bow" image that are a bit overdone these days (But I guess you can say that about a lot of photography). I came across it again recently after it had been sitting on my computer for over half a year and I decided to finally upload it.
Thank you so much to everyone for all the comments, watches and likes. I'll hopefully get around to answering all the comments soon.
I have been involved in a few interviews lately. At the start of the year I was filmed for a documentary on astrophotography in Australia. The filmmakers interviewed about 15 fellow astrophotographers over a few days and are currently sifting through the mountain of footage they collected to produce the final film. I'll let you know when it launches.
Plans are also under way with a local reporter who wants to film me out under the stars for a feature on me and my work. We have had to cancel and reschedule the filming a couple of times due to extreme fire danger periods, but now that things have cooled down here in Australia that project will hopefully happen soon.
the founder of the new group
recently asked if she could interview me for the group. If you are into night sky scapes (and lets face it, if you follow my work, you probably are) then I can highly recommend checking out the group. It is only small at the moment but I hope to see it grow exponentially soon. You can read the interview here:
