One night a month or so back there was a lot of auroral activity and everyone was talking about it on Facebook so I decided late on to take a quick, icy jaunt up to Cornalees to see what I could see. I randomly setup the camera on the tripod, pointed it at the sky and opened the shutter and took this to see if there was going to be anything worth shooting. Turned out I had well and truly missed the aurora and a car came down the road with it’s headlights blazing through my exposure.
The car came into the car park and the driver got out and started chatting and we spent the next hour in the freezing cold talking photography and cameras and astronomy before heading our separate ways.
This isn’t a good photo in any way really, but it reminds me of a peaceful night and some good conversation, and sometimes that’s all I need in a photo.

Desert lightning. A sandstorm blew in and put on a huge lightning show with no rain at all. About an hour later, just as quickly as it had started, it suddenly stopped and the silence returned.

I posted a version of this photo with me in it some time ago but this one with Lindsay is better I think, the stars are more defined and the mountains in the distance stand out.
She’s shining my Surefire Fury into the night across Loch Awe from the gardens of the Ardanaiseig Hotel. It was beautifully dark, this image took 30 seconds at ISO800.

Casino de Monte Carlo in Casino Square.

I had imagined Casino Square to be one of those places that never gets quiet, and during the day and evening it was indeed mobbed, but we came out the casino after midnight to find it empty and peaceful. Tripods are banned so I had to rest the camera on a fence.

We came back from dinner last night and I decided to take some photos from our balcony.
