Comet McNaught

Comet McNaught
Jan 20th 2007 - Mt Coot-tha Lookout, Brisbane, Australia.

Another one from the archives, but I like this shot. My first comet photography session, and it didn't turn out bad at all.

Now available, Comet McNaught for sale as prints or cards.

Nice.

Is this a reworked version of this one? I thought it was funny that no less than 5 minutes after looking at the one on your flickr, this one pops up on here :)

Sure is - ran the original raw file through Lightroom, got a different result to what I did earlier to it on the flickr version. I like this one better.

I like this one too. The cloud just off center stands out more in this version.

I've often heard that of London. Haven't been there myself (yet), but having lived through winters in Adelaide, I can relate to the monotonous cloudy skies for months on end.

Ja it just sux!!! Especially when you're not used to it! (The sky in SA must be pretty similar, I recon, to Australia (same hemisphere, etc)... I do miss seeing the Southern Cross and familiar navigational stars!!!

I would guess so. I've not been to SA (well not the country anyway - South Australia, on the other hand...) ;-)
