i wonder how people describe me when they’re talking about me to someone who’s never met me

I thought i’d upload these fairly old ‘experimental’ pictures “for Science”. I love taking pictures of the night sky, especially when there are just a few layers of clouds to add a sense of scale, distance and movement into the scene.
I thought i’d mention just how important it is to consider location and weather when it comes to taking pictures of the night sky. When you have a fine layer of mist in the atmosphere, or lots of clouds, the light pollution can completely throw off the entire colour balance of a shot, particularly in longer exposures. Sometimes, if you’re prepared for it, you can get an incredible orange sheen over your entire image. In most cases though, you will want to shoot far away from civilisation. It all depends on the shot and what you’re trying to achieve. On this particular trip, I figured i’d see what I could capture, and came out with some interesting colours and shots. It’s always worth trying something new, even if it’s not you your desired effect! Part of me likes these shots, part of me says there’s a reason I left them on my hard drive for so long. For Science!
