Super Moon

At nine o'clock on Sunday night I took a photo of the moon before it entered its orange eclipse wonder! I won't go into the scientific detail because I simply don't have a clue! However what I do know is that it was a spectacular sight!

No, I didn't hijack the Hubble Telescope and take a picture of Mars, this is the moon! I'm sure you know the moon was at its best roughly around 3:30, so this meant I had to sacrifice a decent nights sleep for this photo as I had to get up at 7:00 in the morning for school! As you can see there is a huge change of colours from bright white to dusky orange.

Portland - Part 2

Breaking wave, Portland Bill
After a walk down to the Bill, the waves were crashing against rocks. Another photo courtesy of Sports Mode on the camera.

Emperor Dragonfly 
The next day the female Emperor Dragonfly came back to the pond. I managed to get close enough to get a head shot.

On the way back up to the Observatory, dozens of Swallows were perched all the way up the road. I patiently crept up on this Swallow and eventually got this.

Sunset at Pulpit Rock
And finally to end a great day, a sunset over Pulpit Rock.
