All from Baked Bean cans within a 10 mile radius, using Ilford Multigrade B&W paper. Scanned and played with in Photoshop.
Andy’s first one, slightly different angle to his usual version.
And his second – massive amounts of water damage (was still a few mm of rain in the bottom of the can), but love the effect it’s created. This is his usual angle (so can be compared to previous attempts). Can just make out the house bottom right of centre and the tree to the left.
Mine, screwed to the house, SSE facing.
Sister’s from her new home. Was surprised at the very upper sun trace, but it can be matched to my own above. Thought at first it must have moved or have been a reflection from the inside top of the can. The cans are painted black inside and any movement would have created a double image of the houses – there isn’t anything to suggest that.
One I made up for a lady at my new workplace.
My works Nikon D7000DX (APS-C) and my own (full frame) Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED, hand-held out the bedroom window.

Ean Ean, Rhys and I went for a walk along the promenade arlt Bognor Regis and I photographed the Moon as it sailed above the scene on the ground usong my Samsung S7 smart phone, hand held.
Nothing much astronomical on our recent trip around around the North Coast 500 in Scotland. (https://www.visitscotland.com/see-do/tours/driving-road-trips/north-coast-500/) Fantastic, by the way. Totally lives up to its billing as “Scotland’s stunning answer to Route 66 – – – named one of the top coastal road trips in the world”)
However, lots of nice atmospherics – rainbows and crepescular rays. Here are a few of them.
The last one I couldn’t resist posting – Salmon leaping to get a better view of the sky at the Falls of Shin!
Taken with Samsung S7 phone. The sky was wonderfully dark and clear and Capella a shining beacon with Pleiades to the right of it.
If you zoom in to the image it looks like you can see all three of the major open clusters. However star trailing means I am not sure of this as the fuzzy objects may be slurred stars!
Snapshot from the bedroom window at 1AM last night.
Walking through the park in Lichfield, Damian and I saw this ISS pass. Hand held photo with Samsung S7 phone.
Now 2 days old the moon at 11% illumination presented it self in the evening sky at an elevation of approx. 12 degrees at 21:30, easily visible, unlike yesterday when I could only pick it out using binoculars.
Its companion this evening was Venus, easily visible unlike mercury of the previous evening. Didn’t have to travel any further than front lawn for these shots.
