This telescope was at the cottage Rosalind and I rented for a weekend in Big Hill, NSW.


This image is constructed from 3 separate photos I took as the sun was setting - one right after sunset, one 10 minutes later as it was getting fairly dark, and another 50 minutes later when all the stars were out.

    This is really great post. I think the most difficult part of freelancing for a starter is to be very disciplined with time management and quality of work. This is not easy task to be done. I think freelancing is best way to improve designing. Thanks for sharing

    Hi Ryan, I used your beautiful photo for a University assignment, approriately attributed.
    Many thanks,

    I thought my first post went through, but I guess not... I used your image and gave appropriate credit based (and will always) on the Some Rights Reserved link provided on this page. I used the image to illustrate the "curiosity" effective leaders must have in order to be successful. I may distribute it non-commercially as a memento of that particular leadership quality. It's truly a beautiful picture and thank you for sharing it and allowing others to experience it.
