Night Time

Working nights sometimes has advantages, you have no bosses annoying you, no general queries, can wear shorts, write blogs and delve into night time photography.  Oh you can work too, which I obviously do, lots.

I recently got a Panasonic Lumix G3, and it's my first 'real' camera, by which I mean I can do more than set it on intelligent auto.  I now have to think of shutter speeds, ISO's and F stops.  It has intelligent auto as well so all isn't lost!

The Moon
I'm lucky in that I work in a fairly dark location, it's not the best but it's probably the best area for miles.  On a good night the milky way is visable and the nature of the workplace gives some interesting pictures.  It also has the advantage of multiple air-con units to sit next to, whilst noisy the warm air is a bonus in winter!
The International Space Station
 Hopefully the tricks I am learning will get me some good pics in the USA, startrails over the Grand Canyon?  Could be a good plan.
