Stargaze night till sunrise

Published August 15th, 2012

Went with my friends to Fazeley Natural Reserve Park to see the shooting stars. I only manage to see 4 brighter and longer shooting stars where my friends managed to see more of the other smaller ones.

During the first 3 hours while we waiting for the clouds to clear and then covered with clouds again. Later around 3.45 a.m. the surroundings were all covered with mist and an hour later the sunrise. It was an amazing night with mother nature providing the show for us to see.

We are amateur photographers and this were our first experience of taking shooting stars. The reserve were too bright with road lights on. But the times were well spent and all of us totally caught by the show by the mother nature.

A spiritual, magical and mysterious night we were have.


Work from the hand touch

When the clouds covered the sky, we spent the time taking photos with hand touch.

Mist surrounding the Reserve

My camera gone totally wet with the mist surrounding us. It was hard to take photos. With the mist surrounding the whole reserve it gave this place a mysterious mood.

Blue and Pink

With the sunrise the reserve became blue and pink colors. Reflections on the man-made lake added the effects of play of lights provided by the mother nature.

Enjoying 45 minutes of bright golden sunlight suddenly the sun became a white ball. The place still showered with light gold color but simply a white ball in the sky. Where was the sun gone!!!
