Cape Willoughby Lighthouse in South Australia under the stars. This area of Kangaroo Island is always surrounded by mobs of kangaroos playing on the edge of cliffs above rough oceans. I feel so lucky to be able to experience scenes like this, being at one with nature and the universe! Have a good night everyone! ✨🌌
Starry nights in Second Valley, South Australia. This place is absolutely beautiful at night! Second Valley has been rated as one of Australia's top ten beaches. I hope everyone is having a great day!
Myponga was home to the Myponga Open Air Festival. @blacksabbath performed their first ever Australian live performance at the festival in 1971. This is an image from my recent group workshop. It has been a busy year but I am so grateful that I have been able to teach so many people about astronomy and how to capture the night sky! If you’d like to join me let me know, or book on my website! Have a great weekend 🌌✨
Another shot from Mannum Waterfalls in the Dark sky reserve. A great part of South Australia with some lovely clear skies. The terrain features rock pools, wildlife, interesting rock formations and amazing views as you make your way to the top of the falls. Have a good night everyone! 🌌✨
Saturn and Jupiter lighting up the road in Marion Bay South Australia. It was great to explore Innes National Park last weekend. The upcoming conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be in December which means the planets will align in the sky. In this image you can see that they are getting closer. Have a great day everyone... look up! 🌌✨
Innes National Park at night! Jupiter and Saturn are in the top right corner and are creating an awesome glow on the water. In the distance you can see light pollution from Marion Bay and some red airglow! Have a good night everyone! 🌌✨
A cold night at Cape Spencer Lighthouse in Innes National Park on the Yorke Peninsula, South Australia. In the distance you can see some crazy red air glow and a meteor between exploding between The Magellanic Clouds. Have a great day everyone! Look up ✨ ☄️
Taken in the River Murray Dark Sky Reserve Mannum Waterfalls are a geological phenomenon caused by majestic granite outcrops raising from the plains surrounding Reedy Creek. An awesome place to explore during the day or at night! Look up! ✨🌌
Jupiter and Saturn rise above an old stone ruin in Myponga, South Australia. Planets in the night sky help add ambient light to a scene at night! I hope everyone is having a fantastic day! Look up! ✨🌌
The road to Rapid Bay with a rainbow shaped Milkyway. Have a great night everyone! Look up! ✨ 🌈
The Milkyway and Jupiter putting on a show I’ve the waters of Kangaroo Island. Such a beautiful place! The bushfire affected areas are coming good now! As green as I have ever seen! Make sure you visit! 🌌✨
Cold and foggy nights in the Grampians, Victoria. This image demonstrates how mountains form their own clouds. On the windward side of each mountain, when the air is carrying moisture, the slopes of the mountain cause the air to rise. As the air rises, it cools, and at the dew point temperature, clouds form. Have a great night everyone! ✨🌌
Kangaroo Island is my favourite place in South Australia. It is a place where humans have adapted to nature rather than nature adapting to humans. It is also a perfect place to look into space. Hope everyone is having a wonderful night 🌌✨
I love this part of the night sky, It is very under appreciated! A lume cube was used to light the edge of this old stone ruin in Myponga. To the right you can also see some beautiful air glow! Have a goodnight everyone! 🌌✨
Only on Kangaroo Island. A sail boat laying on a farm. Have a great night everyone! 🌌✨
How thee Milky Way sets in the Southern Hemisphere 🌌✨
This image showcases the effect that light pollution from cities has on the view of our Milkyway galaxy. Even though this location would be considered a dark site, imaging at the end of the Milkyway season or early in the morning causes the nearby light pollution from Adelaide to almost completely drown out the beautiful night sky. Sometimes light pollution can add some excellent drama to an image though! Have a good night, look up! 🌌✨
No need to travel far for beautiful night skies in South Australia. Myponga is only 50 minutes from the city and can produce night skies like these, beautiful airglow and crystal clear skies. This photograph was taken on a group workshop I ran last week. If you’d like to learn how to master night time photography and learn about the galaxy hit me up! 🌌✨
Beach side roads leading to the Milky Way along the Fleurieu Peninsula. Have a great night everyone! ✨🌌
When the stars line up with a beach side stair case it’s hard to resist. Have a good night everyone ✨🌌
Second Valley putting on a show under the beautiful Southern Hemisphere. This hike is a tough one especially climbing up that peak you see in the distance! Have a wonderful night everyone! ✨🌌
This part of the Milky Way is often overlooked by photographers. The Eta Carinae Nebula can be viewed most of the year but only from the Southern Hemisphere. This image was taken on the beautiful Kangaroo Island!
Head over to @cabn .life and enter the competition for a trip to one of their beautiful off grid cabins. I was lucky enough to be given the chance to capture their beautiful cabins under the night skies and morning sun! They are beautiful places to reconnect with nature and get away from the busy city life. If you’re a business that needs similar photos HMU!
The orientation of the Stars and galaxy above can tell us a lot. The dark emu orientation of the Milkyway told aboriginal people when it was time to collect emu eggs! It is so important to make a connection with our night skies. Look up!
