Untitled (2019) – Part of the ‘When We Forget to Look Up’ series.
I got off the bus late at night on my way home from lectures. Looking up I was greeted by this eerie, yet amazing scene above my head. The street lamp shining through the bare tree with branches that made this sweeping circular motion making it look like a nest. I was intrigued. I was left wondering.
Last week on Friday, as I made my way home from Uni, I saw the moon and I was enamoured.
I just couldn’t wait to get home and try and capture it in its full glory (pun intended).
After looking and failing to find my tripod release plate (pretty useless without it), I just made due with the window sill, using a very unstable joby tripod, my very heavy 7D with 70-300mm lens at the end of it and an intervalometer I just acquired. Did I mention that it was cold and windy?
Well…after struggling to balance the equipment, I got my final shot. It’s not brilliant, but I am pretty pleased with myself.
The fast moving clouds gives it some oohhmmff! Don’t you think?
