11.02.16 - Orion and the Fountain
This is from my guided photo walk last night and one of my favourite shots I've ever taken. It was a cold clear night and even in the city so many stars were visible. I couldn't believe it when I saw the constellation Orion appearing in some of the shots, so I tried to find a place where I could shoot the fountain backlit with a lamp with Orion in the sky above it. Eventually I had the camera rested on the ground, propped up at the right angle by my wallet, how's that for improvisation! I'm not sure how clear the stars are for you, they were very obvious on the camera view screen, but not so clear on my lap-top.
