Scorpio sets behind a stand of Casuarinas in McGregor.
In early September and before the rains, we visited the Kruger National Park. The grass was low and the animals plentiful. Here are a few of our pictures.
The original cliched lowveld sunset picture.
Spotted Hyena and pup
We went on a cruise with 2000 other birders looking for pelagic birds.
We got some really great shots and had a really good time. We left Cape Town in the late afternoon
Lions head and Table Mountain
The sunset was marvelous
Then next day, the birds
And then back again.
There is a video here
We spent a weekend in Grootvadersbosch and the second night was really good for astronomy. Clear and near windless. Beautiful!
Long exposure, wide angled images. This one is Venus, Saturn and Scorpio.
The Southern Cross
The new moon sets behind Lions Head as hikers descend from the top after watching the sunset.
During that photographic session I saw a green deep sky object. I am still battling to identify it and figure out why it is green. The red circle on the right is a hiker, the red circle on theleft is Venus, but what is the green object?
This peacock really put on a show for us.
