It was one of those days were I didn't find much and it was a matter of waiting for the sunset which unfortunately turned out very cloudy, the luck of there draw! Regardless here as some of the shots I captured.
28th August 2014 I decided to go out to Cape Palliser as the moon was very small and there was chance the sky would be very clear (it turned out not to be so thus adding quiet a bit of cloud to the shots)
11th August 2014 I decided to go out to Castle Point on the night before the Supermoon, (Perigee Moon) and take some night shots of Castle Point. I knew it would be bright and not a great night for capturing the Milky way, however…..when I got there it was very bright and the shots almost look liker they were taken in the day apart from there tell tale lighthouse light and some stars.
