The Year that was 2012

So as i said, i have been pretty slack with the blog, so i thought i would do a a few quick posts to bring us back up to date. 2012 was a pretty big year for many different reasons and also super super busy. We were lucky enough to spend 10 weeks in the United States driving from Coast to Coast (West to East) – thats a whole other blog and bunch of photos that i have neglected quite significantly.

Upon returning from the states i happened across a very active photography group – The Sundancers, here in my home town of Newcastle. I think i was invited or advised of them by a good mate – De – for which i am very thankful. I think at times they may have been one of the only things keeping me sane. They are a wonderful larikin bunch of photographers that love to have fun and obviously take pictures, with some extremely talented photographers amongst them more then happy to share their skills and knowledge with others.

So with this group came a lot of photography firsts, new friends, laughter and a whole new level of photography activity and also an obvious improvement in my photography.

Here is short pictology of my adventures and the year that was 2012:

A trip to the Barrington Tops National Park a few hours drive Nth West of home, in search of snow, also no snow this trip.

My first attempt at star trails, whilst the Geminoid Meteor showing was happening – definitely one to keep working on and to get right away from the city lights.
