Peering into the heart of the constellation Scorpius near the central bulge of our Milky Way galaxy, one is greeted with a more intimate view of the complexities of our neighbourhood. We see a mixture of dark dust lanes, vast clouds of interstellar matter, fine mists of countless stars and colourful emission and reflection nebula.

No wonder God had a seventh day! It wasn’t because he was tired, it was so He could sit back and say, “Hey!! It is good!”

Wouldn’t you?

Ex-cattle stockman and Australian Army soldier, Barry loves God and all things under creation.

With a background of digital astrophotography, wildlife, portrait, real-estate and macrophotography, He left full-time work in 2010 to see if photography could become a career.

Barry’s aim (besides making a living) is to show images of God’s creation from the largest things in the universe, to the smallest things on this planet, to people who wouldn’t otherwise get the opportunity to see.

    You must have some pretty nice equipment to play with . . .

  • Normally I am using my telescope, but this time I decided to just use the camera lens. This is my normal stuff. http://www.asignobservatory.com/index.php?optio...
