Skyscapes

The beginning of a new adventure - if I can afford the lens, find the time, and develop the skills! Astrophotography is a whole new avenue I would like to explore. Being closer to a dark sky reserve would help, as would that fat wallet. These photographs were taken, with expert guidance from a helpful Japanese astrophysicist, while visiting a dark sky reserve on the outskirts of Lake Tekapo on New Zealand's South Island.
