Cradle of Stars
I really wanted to get out and do some star shots while in Tassie for 10 days but the weather was conspiring against me. Wet and cloudy in a week packed with other evening activities I took a chance on Boxing Day to drive up to Cradle Mountain. It was so completely spur of the moment I didn't even pack so much as a jumper, by midnight I was freezing as the camera was doing its thing (and it was still twilight, I wasnt hanging around for that in the cold). But boy is it a beautiful night sky, I did not do it justice, though I thought the satellite was cool. I also hadn't considered the drive home, which is dangerous in the dark on windy roads packed with animals darting about. 2 unfortunately went to a better place despite my best efforts, so too, did a Samyang lens cap. A last interesting note, I couldn't get closer to the lake because a fellow photographer was doing a 12 hour time lapse, that red spot is not noise it's his camera doing its thing. He was sleeping in the car and rugged up for the arctic. Clever bloke.
