G'day all,

 

I should start out with an homage to Australian bush dance. The seeing last night was predicted to be the best of the week, but my wife insisted on dragging me to a local bush dance. Not that I should complain—she and I grew up going to barn dances in Texas, so I felt right at home. I relished at seeing so many young people (including my older son) enjoying such an old tradition…and I couldn't help but marvel at how the do-si-do crosses so many centuries, cultures and continents!

 

So we'll have to make do with tonight's best-of, a brief interval of 1025 good frames in otherwise mediocre seeing:

Cheers,

BQ

As you say  mediocre seeing, but this still is a beautiful image. The colors are very nice and the banding is very prominent keep up the great work! bow.gif waytogo.gif

Thanks for the kind words, mate…and thanks to all for the likes!

 

Processing this was way easier than Stripping the Willow
