A few days ago, I shared this photo of a Zeppelin that passed us by when I was on Lake Constance.

It was part of an iPhone burst, so I had the idea to create an animated gif file of the experience. This was a little trickier than expected however, because I was on a boat at the time, so the degree of shake was pretty serious!

I took 22 shots from the burst and, patiently working with Affinity Photo, I stabilised them as much as I could. Here’s the result.

Just in case you are asking – the two small dots in front of the Zeppelin is a plane carrying an advertising banner.

Against my better judgement (as tomorrow is an incredibly busy day for me) – I heard there might be auroras around, so I ventured out to my favourite place and.. I was not disappointed.

It was a subtle enough effect. With the naked eye you might not have seen much, but with a camera set to 40 seconds exposure, the sky came to life.

I was expecting to see green, but not red.

Our atmosphere clearly got hit by something big tonight! A big explosion on the sun is usually the reason for such beauty.

Most of the time, Cork is too far south to see anything of value. Not tonight.
