Just after lunch today I decided to head outdoors as the sun was finally shining and the light was much nicer than the past couple of days. However it was quite windy and the clouds were streaking through the sky. I headed to my favourite night sky spot in Hamilton, Binbrook Conservation Area. Funny thing is I had never photographed there during the day.
I headed out last evening to perhaps catch some of the Perseid’s Meteor shower. I saw quite a few, but the camera did not catch any. However the night sky was very clear and the Milky Way certainly showed up!
This evening I headed to Binbrook Conservation Area to do some night sky shooting. It is probably the darkest area near to Hamilton. The sky was reasonably clear and lots of stars were visible. The Milky Way was not so much.
This is another image from last night. We were doing a bit of light painting on this dock at Binbrook Conservation area. I am not overally impressed with the results but since I did not go to light paint it is not bad considering I did not have the right equipment on hand.
I headed to Binbrook Conservation area this evening along with other members from the Hamilton Photographers Meetup group and a couple of hundred from the Hamilton Amateur Astronomy club in hopes of seeing the Perseids Meteor shower. Unfortunately the sky was completely overcast and not a star nor a meteor was to be seen. However the sunset was wonderful over Lake Niapenco! We also had some fun light painting a dock.
