2007 in Pictures
August, 2007

An old hobby now given a new lease of life - sky watching.
The Summer Triangle

Right Top - Vega (Alpha Lyrae, Nickname: Weaver Girl),

Left Top - Deneb (Alpha Cygni),

Mid Bottom - Altair (Alpha Aquilae, Nickname: Cowherd)
and part of the Orion Arm of the Milky Way clearly visible in Greater Vancouver.

Having a clear sky is now at a premium in most cities, the suburbs of Greater Vancouver is an exception.

Thanks to the T-grain film technology, the image was captured with ease. However I have not mastered the digital techniques yet.

28mm lens ISO 400 film at f2.8 12 seconds exposure.
