I spent some time around Nelson, New Zealand on the weekend and had some great weather for shooting the stars! We pulled over to the side of the road on the way back to town to get a quick shot of the Milky Way rising over the hills - it was definitely worth the stop! at Nelson, New Zealand
I’m in Nelson, New Zealand tonight talking at the Nelson Science Society. The talk is open to the public with a gold coin donation and is at 7.30pm at the NMIT, Room A211. I’ll be talking about the story behind this image and a whole lot more! at Nelson, New Zealand
LMC and I - the Large Magellanic Cloud is a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way 158,200 light years from Earth, and it’s only visible from the Southern Hemisphere. I photographed this image on the south coast of Wellington, New Zealand. at Wellington, New Zealand

On Friday night, I attended the Photographic Society of New Zealand national conference in Lower Hutt as the keynote speaker, and then took a bus load of attendees down to the Wainuiomata Coast for an astrophotography workshop. It was an awesome night and we had clear skies for the workshop which was fantastic! at Lower Hutt, New Zealand
During my last visit to @bushtops in Kenya, I had a very special experience when I visited the Kakiya Cave and was able to time-lapse the Masai in the cave. They created a fire in the traditional way without matches, and spent the night singing and chatting amongst themselves. We recorded the singing and used it as a soundtrack for this timelapse.
The name Kakiya means the place of eating and drinking, and the cave itself has long been used by the Masai for traditional rituals, including ancestor worship and the sacrifice of pure white or black bulls. at Mara Bushtops
Stop, look up and enjoy - our night sky is one simple but amazing thing that’s free for all. at Wellington, New Zealand
I just got back from 5 days on Great Barrier Island, New Zealand for @theartofnight Astrophotography Workshop at @oramaoasis We managed to get a couple of good opportunities to shoot the night sky, and the workshop attendees weren't disappointed. Great Barrier Island is an official Dark Sky Sanctuary, and has some of the darkest skies in the world!
I photographed this image just a few steps from my accommodation at Orama Oasis at 5am this morning 😊 at Orama Oasis
Well what an amazing night it was last night on Great Barrier Island for the @theartofnight astrophotography workshop. We left @oramaoasis around 9pm and didn’t return until close to 3am. The night started off cloudy but totally cleared, and we were treated to amazing stars, reflections and even bioluminescence making the waves glow blue in the darkness. Everyone was really excited and got some really great photos from the night! at Great Barrier Island
The new issue of the @darkskytravels Magazine has just been published, and they have a Special Feature on New Zealand!
I was also fortunate enough to score the front cover, with an image I shot during my Great Barrier Island astrophotography workshop last year - there's more info on this years workshop inside the magazine as well, plus a whole lot more astrophotography goodness :) Follow the link in my bio to read the magazine. at Orama Oasis
Full moon tonight in Wellington, New Zealand at Wellington, New Zealand
It’s just one month to go before The Art of Night Astrophotography Workshop on Great Barrier Island, New Zealand.
There’s still a few places left, and it would be a great opportunity to not only up your astrophotography and astro time-lapse skills, but also have some entries to enter in the 2019 Aotea-Great Barrier Astrophotography Competition, which is offering some great cash prizes!
And as I’m a @worldpixorg affiliate, I’ll be donating 100% of my workshop fee to the @womensrefugenz so your participation in the workshop will also be going to a good cause.
You can find all the details on the workshop here by following the link in my bio. at Orama Oasis
