Twilight At Praia De Albandeira (March 2018)

Back in March, I went to take sunset and dusk shots at the fantastic Albandeira Arch. I really wasn’t happy with the results of both the photo and post-editing.

Today, I was going through some old work and once again stumbled across this session. During this year, I have approached my post work differently to achieve my results, so I adopted this new approach and had another go at editing one of the shots from this session. I am now extremely happy with this final image. It just goes to show that you should never just automatically delete photos you are not happy with, it could just be a bad day of creativity, a sort of photographers writers block.

International Space Station (ISS) At Twilight

At 6pm this evening an email came through from N2YO.com alerting me of the ISS passing over at 6:20pm. A quick look outside and there was a nice orange glow to the twilight. I checked the path of the ISS and it was approaching from the North West and passing to the South East, straight across my view of the twilight.

I set the camera up in the garden with some Yucca Plants to frame the shot and waited.

Soon enough, the bright ISS came into frame. I took four 20 second shots and merged them together to create this image of the light streak as it flies over head at 27600kmh, yes that’s almost 8km every second!
