Fun Stuff: October 2014 Archives

So Wednesday night saw me standing outside for nearly two hours documenting the moon.

Part way there

A little further

Exposed for the dark side, makes the bright bit *very* bright

A mid-way exposure

Then I remembered I had Dad's 250mm lens.  Just cropped here, so the picture is bigger, but I don't think the quality is there - it's very soft.

Another one

This a 30 second exposure so I could capture Neptune - which is in the very top right corner of the picture

Back to my lens

Totality is finished now

And a bit more out of the shadow

At this point I gave up and went to bed

September Jigsaws

Here's a couple of work ones - Monument Valley and Winter Wonderland.

Monument Valley jigsaw

Winter Wonderland jigsaw

These two jigsaws had letters on the reverse so you could easily figure out the orientation and approximate location.  We may have cheated a little here and there.  I reckon it would have been even easier to flip everything over and do the reverse jigsaw - as it'd have been twenty five 40-piece jigsaws that you could have done in no time flat.

This is one I started downstairs months and months ago but never finished it over winter (too cold) and also the green was very similar in tone which made it quite hard.
