Photos taken with iPhone through telescope, no editing.
Photo straight from my phone, no editing.
I set the alarm early this morning, wondering if I’d be able to see the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the pre-dawn sky. Alas, no, they were too close to the rising sun.
Instead I experimented with my iphone, held in front of binoculars, as the sun rose above the horizon. I then reset my alarm and had another hour in bed before the start of my working week 🙂
I have learnt a new word today:
ev·a·nes·cent (adjective) – “Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.”
The rapidly changing colours before dawn seem perfect for this word. Here are some Hobart sunrises that I have snapped this month.
These 2 photos are 8 minutes apart.
This is an original photo, no editing. Followed by a “cold tone” edit which I think highlights the actual sun rays.
Here’s to a brand new day, new hopes, new opportunities. Wishing everyone a good day.
The skies today have led to an evening thunder storm.
October has been a month of colour, of spring flowers.
A month of changeable weather, the southern hemisphere’s equivalent to “April Showers”. There have been warm sunny spring days, but also mornings when we have woken to snow on Mount Wellington, along with cold southerly winds.
It has been a month of rainbows, which is a nice way to sum up my month of colour posts.
The view from our kitchen looks towards Hobart’s Casino. I wonder what the response would be, if I showed them this photo and asked for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
