Alex Cherney's Ocean Sky

In my travels on Twitter - which I love for world news and friendly chatter, I came across a link - from the QI Elves - which led me to Alex Cherney's "Ocean Sky".

This is an award-winning short sequence of time-lapse photography, which he shot from a beach in Southern Australia. It is possibly the most beautiful film I have ever seen.

What an insight for an average star-gazing northern hemisphere dweller like me.
You can actually SEE the Milky Way...
Bravo Alex. And thank you.

Hey, Mariane :-) Thank you. We are fine. Two boys almost full grown, youngest still an imp! I am very happy in my work - feel really fortunate to do a job I love for people I like.
And Rob's death nearly two years ago - it's like yesterday still. I miss him terribly. But I'll make him proud by pressing on cheerfully.

How are you? I shall come and visit and find out! X
