Quiet Thursdays – Night at Banyule Flats
It has been the New Moon this last week and I’ve been trying to get out to get some photos, but we seem be having endless overcast days, always, right when you don’t want them. I was hopeful the other night when I convinced my husband to come out with me to Banyule Flats, to see if I could get the milky way from there.
I don’t know if it is possible, but you can see the city lights in one direction and just black towards the east, so I wondered if I could get it from there. I tried once before, I showed you last week, but it was during the full moon, I thought with no moon, it could be interesting to see what I could get.
As we were walking outside we could see that it was getting cloudy, but I hoped that it would hold off until I got what I wanted. Well it didn’t work, by the time we got to the spot, there were clouds everywhere. Though it was surprising to see how light it actually was, so, while I was there, I took some photos.
I don’t know about you, but I think it is so cool when you can take photos at night. I love how this comes up at night. You can also see the clouds, it was a thick covering.
I was also hoping to see if I could get some star trails, and I think it might be possible, but it wasn’t that night. I will go back some time and try again, but I might wait until we have better weather and I can be fairly sure that I won’t lose the sky to cloud cover. I could see movement in the stars in these images, so I am fairly certain I can get something, I will try. Looking forward to it.
I hope you are having a quiet day. I’m away, and sure I am taking lots of photos around Apollo Bay, if you see me there, be sure to say hello.
