2017 - Week One

This week I have photographedThe moon and Venus.

Prof. Brian Cox confirmed on twitter that lots of people had asked what it was and that it was venus. I used a 55-250mm lens to capture this. We don't have a working telescope at the moment, and I don't have an adaptor for my camera either way, so this is the best I can do at present.

2016 Catch Up Post

Day Trips and Travel:

Shortly after LittleBit's birthday celebrations, during the half-term holiday, we arranged a "day trip" to Blackpool... we'd bought a 'Big Ticket' each, which allows access to each of the seven major attractions which are part of the Blackpool Tower, and which are valid for 90 days, meaning anything we couldn't get to this trip, we would visit again another time.
