Shot Notes

I have waited two years to visit this remote spot on Weilwan land. Each night I watch the majestic galactic emu rise in the Australian sky. I planned to explore this area last year until I heard there was a mountain of blueberries about to be wasted due to a shortage of backpackers. By the time the harvest finished, it was summer and too hot to visit. Winter is the perfect time of year to go bush. I arrived on the day a 2-week partial stay at home order was called in the populated parts of New South Wales. I have not been near the covid outbreak area for 5 months but my driving licence address is in lockdown. I decided to stay isolated in the Outback, and hope I don’t run into any officious cops.

    A beautiful image Jason. I really envy you your transparent skies. That looks like you are looking towards the galactic centre but I don’t recognise any constellations. I think GC is in the direction of Sagitarius.

    Thanks. There are so many visible stars it can be hard to spot constellations, That is why the original astronomers of this sky use the dark dust clouds to make shapes. Sagittarius.
