Blog Orbit – March 2023

Hello there bloggies! Happy March to you all! Can you actually believe that it’s march already? In a few weeks we will completed one quarter of this year! I know that no one reading this wanted to hear that, but oh well.

Despite the facts there’s still so much going on this was a better month and I actually got some posts out. I know – pull out the shocked faces!

Fist off Jupiter and Venus we looking very close in the sky towards the end of February, their closest was on March the first – however the inevitable pre-scheduled cloud buggered that up. However one evening the Moon lined up with them as well.

I also caught a shot of this comet back from February which was missed in last month’s orbit!

The other thing that’s been going on is the northern lights that have been visible from the UK in the last week or so. Last week I wasn’t able to go out and see them becasue of a stinking cold – this week there might be another chance… guess what though – yup the bloody weather!

I hope you’re all keeping good!

How about you guys? How are we all doing out there? How’s life treating you?

A Lens to the Sky

I love skylines, so often a lens doesn’t do them justice but sometimes a wide lens and a moody sky can make a beautiful picture. I wish I could mount some of these at times…Enjoy the views!

Thinking about it makes it Hurt – The Tax System

I’m sorry, it’s me – I can’t help it. I’ve tried to keep the insanity from the door of this corner of the web but I can’t do it any longer. The world in which we live is wonderful, beautiful and terrible thing and yet there’s few – well quite a lot of people actually…

A Flavour of Spring

I can’t talk obviously about the rest of the world, but here in the UK Spring has been a bit of a washout but there have been a few times where the Sun and been able to shine onto the beauty of the Spring and I’ve been able to capture a flavour of it.I hope…
